Fulham have completed their spectacular double signing of Nice duo Maxime Le Marchand and Jean Michael Seri for an undisclosed fee, with the latter signing a four-year-deal with the South London club.
Seri had been linked with the likes of Chelsea, Barcelona and Arsenal in the past few season and his outstanding performances for Nice across the past three years showing why he was so highly rated by those clubs and legends such as Xavi. Le Marchand may fly under the radar in comparison to his new teammate Seri’s arrival, but his 173 appearances for Nice after joining in 2015 says a lot about his consistency at left back.
“It was a long day yesterday so it was great to get the move finalised,” said Seri, speaking at Fulham’s Motspur Park training ground.
“I’m ready to get started and looking forward to meeting the squad and getting to know them, the head coach and his staff better. I am delighted to be here, It’s a new adventure that starts for me and I am hoping it will all go well.”
Le Marchand also spoke about his move to the Cottagers, saying “I’m very happy to sign for Fulham, this is a big club that’s very popular.”
“I am also very happy to have joined up with a good friend (Seri) and I know that there is a lot of hard work ahead and I hope to bring my very best to this team.”
