Fulham ‘increasingly hopeful’ of signing £120k-a-week PL attacker this summer

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

Fulham are now increasingly hopeful that they can reach an agreement with Chelsea for winger Callum Hudson-Odoi.

A report from the Daily Mail’s Transfer Confidential has shared more details on the 22-year-old.

It’s a mixed time to be a Fulham fan right now.

Aleksandar Mitrovic looks increasingly likely to leave the club to join Saudi Arabian side Al-Hilal.

Fulham will make a decent profit on the 28-year-old, but it’s a disappointing way to see the Serbian’s time at the club end after becoming a hero at Craven Cottage.

In much better news, Marco Silva appears to be staying after turning another move down to Saudi Arabia.

The Portuguese has rejected a huge approach from Al Ahli which should help bring new players to the club.

One player Fulham are now more hopeful of signing is Callum Hudson-Odoi.

The three-time England international has immense potential but struggled to get a run at Chelsea.

Even on loan at Bayer Leverkusen last season, he failed to make much of an impact.

Fulham hopeful of Hudson-Odoi deal

The report from the Daily Mail suggests Raul Jimenez is on his way to West London and Hudson-Odoi could now follow.

The £120,000-a-week winger is keen to move this summer with Lazio also interested, but Fulham are ‘increasingly hopeful’ about doing a deal.

The news that Marco Silva is staying appears to have been a catalyst for deals suddenly advancing.

The Portuguese is absolutely essential to the club’s success and Hudson-Odoi might now be buying into that.

On his day, the 22-year-old is nearly impossible to stop and can terrorise defences.

However, in the last couple of seasons, that day hasn’t arrived often enough for Chelsea’s liking.

Hudson-Odoi needs a fresh start and will be hopeful that moving to Fulham could potentially offer that change.

It would likely mean minimal disruption to his life outside of football given the proximity of Chelsea and Fulham.

That may appeal alongside seeing how many players have improved and thrived under Silva’s management.
