Fulham to Make Another Move for Lyon Star Rayan Cherki in Summer Transfer After January Bid Falls Through

Introduction to the Article:

Fulham will try once again to acquire Lyon attacking midfielder Rayan Cherki in the upcoming summer transfer window. Despite making a late attempt with a club-record £35 million offer in the January window, the 20-year-old could not make the move in time. Both Fulham and Lyon are now looking to finalize the deal in the summer.

Lyon’s Struggles and Criticism

Despite having been with Lyon since 2010, Rayan Cherki has yet to find the back of the net this season as Lyon continues to struggle in Ligue 1. This has led to criticism from fans, and the attacking midfielder’s future with the club remains uncertain.

Interest from Other Clubs

Aside from Fulham, other clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, and Newcastle, have shown interest in Rayan Cherki, reflecting the high potential and talent he possesses. The young midfielder’s ability to potentially replace aging players like Willian at Fulham has also been noted.

Fulham’s Transfer Acquisitions

Despite the failed attempt to sign Rayan Cherki, Fulham’s acquisition of Armando Broja on loan from Chelsea in the winter transfer window reflects their commitment to strengthening the squad. However, the 2-2 draw at Burnley saw Chelsea’s David Datro Fofana stealing the spotlight with a late brace, overshadowing Fulham’s new signing in his debut.
