According to reports in Italy, Fulham have agreed a fee of £3.5m for Palermo midfielder Pajtim Kasami.

Gazetta Dello Sport say that the deal has been completed and the transfer will be announced later this week. The 19 year-old had enjoyed an impressive first season with Palermo, having made 24 appearances for the Rosanero, including eight in last season’s Europa League.

Kasami was a team-mate of Fulham striker Lauri Dalle Valle in the Liverpool youth-team, but left Merseyside having failed to earn a work permit.
