Every Fulham fan’s favourite Serbian manager is finally back in English football.

Indeed, Slavisa Jokanovic has been announced as the new Sheffield United gaffer, and with parachute paments to play with and transfer promises reportedly made, Jokanovic could look to bring back a few of his former players.

A number of Fulham players from the Jokanovic era remain at Craven Cottage, and we’re going to look at three he could attempt to take to Bramall Lane.

Stefan Johansen was a firm favourite of Jokanovic’s during his tenure at Fulham, and with just one year left on the Norwegian’s Craven Cottage contract, he could be on the move this summer.

Sheffield United certainly have problems that need solving in their midfield, and the energy of Johansen could be exactly what the doctor ordered.

There’s every chance that Johansen leaves Fulham this summer, and a move to Yorkshire would make the world of sense for the 30-year-old.

Kamara grew to be one of Jokanovic’s most-trusted players at Fulham, starting the Whites’ playoff final against Aston Villa back in 2018.

Kamara is probably a player Fulham will want to keep hold of, but with Sheffield United lacking wingers and Jokanovic preferring to play a 4-3-3 system, there’s every chance Jokanovic will be in the market for a new wide player this summer.

Will that man be Kamara? Well the attacker spent the second half of the 2020/21 out on loan, so a move away from Craven Cottage is possible, and re-uniting with Jokanovic would certainly be appealing for the Fulham man

After Aaron Ramsdale was named in England’s provisional squad for the Euros, there’s every chance that a Premier League club will come in for the Sheffield United goalkeeper.

Ramsdale has had an indifferent season, but he improved dramatically towards the end of the campaign, even earning himself a nomination for Premier League Player of the Month.

If Ramsdale is to go, Jokanovic will need a new goalkeeper, and with Bettinelli seemingly out of favour at Fulham, logic would suggest that re-uniting with Jokanovic could be a good move for the stopper.
