Everton have reportedly made contact about Fulham midfielder Jean-Michael Seri, who is currently out on loan at Turkish club Galatasaray.
The Ivory Coast international left Craven Cottage in the summer on a season-long loan to join Galatasaray.
According to Foot Mercato, both Everton and Monaco have started discussions with the 28-year-old’s representatives about a potential move in January.
The report explains they have enquired about his future and it’s believed that Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti was already eyeing him when he Napoli boss.
It’s unclear on if Seri’s loan deal could be ripped up midway through the season, but it looks like he’s in demand ahead of the January transfer window.
Seri is a tenacious central midfielder full of energy and also has an eye for goal when he drives forward.
It would be a smart move for Ancelotti to strengthen his midfield at Goodison Park in the January window, as it seems a little lightweight at the minute and a fresh body should help the squad.
Seri is an intriguing target that is building his reputation back up in Turkey with Galatasaray and has played Champions League football with them this season.
He was an exciting midfielder that was the total package when he was previously at Lille, but his spell in England so far saw him flop with Fulham and suffer a relegation from the Premier League.
There would definitely be a risk behind bringing him to Merseyside, but Ancelotti should be backed to sign the players he wants.
