Former Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen has lauded the Cottagers for signing Jean Michael Seri, calling it an ‘absolute steal.’
They Craven Cottage outfit beat off competitions from a number of top European clubs to secure the signature of the midfielder in July, although they had to cough out a club record €30 million.
Last season, the 27-year-old made 31 league appearances for French Ligue 1 side Nice scoring twice amid numerous dazzling displays.
“I tell you what, Jean-Michael Seri … an absolute steal, in my opinion,” Meulensteen told BBC Radio 5 Live.
“He is a top six, if not a top three player. He reminds me of Clarence Seedorf – he’s got that guile and moves the ball – and Fulham’s got him. Fantastic.”
