Fulham now keen to sign ‘exceptional’ £35m midfielder, he’s already faced the Whites this season

Why Chelsea FINALLY Turned A Corner.

Fulham now want to sign Everton midfielder Alex Iwobi with Friday’s transfer deadline rapidly approaching.

A report from the Daily Mail has shared more details about the 27-year-old’s potential move this summer.

The final days of the transfer window are when Fulham tend to do most of their business.

They’ve proved that today by confirming the signing of Leicester City defender Timothy Castagne.

The full-back can play on either side and will provide good competition for Kenny Tete and Antontee Robinson.

Fulham need reinforcements in other areas and Tony Khan is always on the lookout for a good deal.

The priority has to be a striker and Flamengo forward Pedro is being looked at right now.

Fulham also want a midfielder and Everton’s Alex Iwobi is the player they’ve identified.

Signed by the Toffees for £35m, the ‘exceptional’ Nigerian international would be a very useful option.

His versatility would appeal to Marco Silva as he could play in midfield or on either wing.

Fulham want to sign Iwobi

The report from the Daily Mail suggests that Iwobi is on Fulham’s radar ahead of Friday’s deadline.

Iwobi only has one year left on his current contract and despite being offered the opportunity to renew, he hasn’t signed a new deal.

Fulham may now sense an opportunity with Everton unlikely to want him to leave on a free transfer next summer.

For the Toffees, losing a player who was vital to their survival last season is a huge blow, especially given their poor start to the season.

Iwobi started against Fulham on the opening day and despite the hosts having the better chances, they still came away with a 1-0 loss.

Fulham want to sign Iwobi to strengthen their own squad but it’s not exactly a bad thing that they would be weakening a potential rival.

Another man being looked at by Fulham right now is Lucas Ocampos.

If he joins Iwobi at Craven Cottage alongside a new striker, it would be seen as a successful window for Fulham.

Fans will wish that Tony Khan didn’t leave it to the last minute to make these moves like he does every summer.
