The Super Eagles star has been impressive for his club this season, and has played a crucial role for Jose Peseiro’s Super Eagles during AFCON qualifiers
The Nigerian international, who has been performing admirably for his Turkish club, has drawn attention from clubs in England following his departure from Queens Park Rangers to join Fenerbahçe in January 2021.
The Cherries had previously shown interest in securing his signature in January, but a loan move fell through due to their inability to meet the £12 million asking price.
On the other hand, Brentford has reportedly tabled a €12 million offer, indicating their desire to strengthen their defensive squad with the talented Nigerian midfielder.
Bright Osayi-Samuel, has been outstanding for his club and national team in the 2022-23 season campaign.
He has been linked with a move back to England, and Bournemouth and Brentford would battle for his signature.

While expressing his desire to return to England, Osayi-Samuel also emphasized his respect for Fenerbahce, acknowledging the support and opportunities they have provided him during his time at Şükrü Saracoğlu Stadium.
Despite being aware of the transfer speculation, the 25-year-old remains focused on his game and aims to continue improving.
“I am aware of the rumors, but I prefer to let the journalists talk about it. My main focus is on my game. I need to concentrate on what I have to do, and that’s all,” said Osayi-Samuel.
