Fulham are now poised to make a second bid for Flamengo striker Pedro as they attempt to replace Aleksandar Mitrovic.
A report from the Evening Standard has shared more details about the Brazilian’s future in the final days of the transfer window.
Losing Aleksandar Mitrovic to Saudi Arabian club Al Hilal in the final two weeks of the summer window is a bitter blow for Fulham.
The Serbian has been key to the club’s success over the past few seasons and will be very difficult to replace.
Fulham have already signed a striker this summer, bringing in Raul Jimenez from Wolves.
Silva also has Carlos Vinicius and Rodrigo Muniz to choose from but there are still concerns about their ability to regularly score goals in the top flight.
Fulham are now set to make another bid for Pedro as they once again turn to Brazil for their recruitment.
The 26-year-old was part of Brazil’s World Cup squad last year and is in great form for Flamengo.
After a very short stint in Europe earlier in his career, he’s now ready to give it another go at Craven Cottage.
Fulham ready to make another bid for Pedro
The report from the Evening Standard suggests that after having an initial £21m offer rejected, Fulham want to bid again for Pedro.
They suggest that Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata is also an option but the Brazilian appears to be their first choice.
Pedro wants to move to the Premier League which will encourage Fulham despite interest from Benfica and Zenit St. Petersburg.
The 26-year-old already has five goals in nine league starts for Flamengo this season.
That’s off the back of scoring 11 goals last season and his form earned him a spot in an incredibly competitive Brazil squad.
Fulham will have to bid for Pedro soon given how little time is left in the transfer window.
Their hopes of Premier League survival could hinge on bringing in the right replacement for Mitrovic.
Pedro could be that man and given the other lusophones in the squad, he should adapt to his new side very quickly.
