Fulham boss Silva targets Fenerbahce winger Osayi-Samuel

Fenerbahce winger Bright Osayi-Samuel is being linked with a return to England.

New Fulham head coach Marco Silva is interested in making Fenerbahce winger Osayi-Samuel his first signing at Craven Cottage, says Milliyet.

The Portuguese manager is set to offer the former Blackpool and Queens Park Rangers winger an opportunity to return to the Championship after six months in the Turkish Super Lig.

Silva is said to have turned down the Fenerbahce job to take over from Scott Parker as Cottagers boss earlier this week. Osayi-Samuel made 19 appearances for the Istanbul outfit and scored one goal after moving for a fee believed to be £457,000.

It is reported that the 23-year-old wants to become a first-team regular with Fenerbahce, but the club would be open to selling the wide man if the right offer comes in.
