Fulham set to break club record transfer fee for Lyon star amidst relegation-threatened French giants’ woes

Introduction to the article:
The article discusses Fulham’s reported interest in breaking their transfer record by pursuing Lyon’s star midfielder, Rayan Cherki. Cherki, who has caught the eye of several European clubs, could potentially be sold by Lyon to alleviate their financial troubles and make way for new recruits.

Fulham’s Pursuit of Rayan Cherki

Fulham is reported to be making a move to sign Lyon’s star midfielder, Rayan Cherki. The 20-year-old, who has risen through Lyon’s academy, has already made over 100 appearances for the club and has attracted interest from clubs such as Chelsea, Manchester United, and Newcastle.

Lyon’s Financial Difficulties

Lyon is facing financial difficulties and is currently sitting in the relegation zone of Ligue 1. The club’s interim boss could potentially “sacrifice” Cherki in order to raise funds to bring in new recruits and bolster the struggling team.

Cherki’s Potential Transfer

Cherki, who has not scored this season but has provided three assists, could potentially be sold to Fulham for a reported fee of £30m, which would surpass Fulham’s current transfer record. The club appears to be keen on bringing the young midfielder to the Premier League.

Fulham’s Other Transfer Targets

In addition to pursuing Cherki, Fulham is also interested in Chelsea’s Armando Broja, although they are hesitant to pay the £5m loan fee. Lyon’s reported willingness to sell Cherki could potentially pave the way for a record-breaking transfer for Fulham.
