Fulham and Chelsea loanees seem to go hand and hand these days.
Indeed, while the Whites and the Blues may be rivals, their work in the transfer market certainly wouldn’t suggest that this is the case.
The likes of Gael Kakuta, Lucas Piazon, Tomas Kalas, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Michael Hector have all crossed the west London divide in recent years, and we wouldn’t be too shocked to see one or two Chelsea youngsters go on loan to Craven Cottage this year.
So, we’re going to have a look at three Blues players Fulham could look at loaning this summer.
Fulham have already been linked with a transfer move for Ike Ugbo in the past, but with the Whites’ relegation from the Premier League now confirmed, it may make more financial sense to bring him in on loan.
The young striker has been starring out in Belgium this term, and with Fulham severely lacking depth in the striking position, this one would make a lot of sense.
Marc Guehi is no stranger to Championship football having spent two seasons starring at Swansea City, helping the Welsh outfit to two top-six finishes.
Given that Tosin Adarabioyo’s release clause may see him leave the club this summer and Terence Kongolo is very injury prone, Fulham could probably do with some more depth at centre-half, and Guehi would provide that.
This would be a quality addition that would make a lot of sense.
It’s hard to believe that Musonda is still a Chelsea player, but he is indeed still on the books at Stamford Bridge.
Fulham have often been a team to take a chance on Blues outcasts, with Piazon and Kalas being two prime examples, and Musonda could join that list.
Fulham could do with some more quality on the wings, and this speedy Belgian could provide more of an attacking spark in a team that has struggled going forward for far too long.
