Brighton and Hove Albion winger Anthony Knockaert is currently having a medical with Fulham ahead of a proposed transfer, according to a Sky Sports report.
Fulham reportedly made an approach to the south coast club last week and a fee of around £15m was quoted for the 27 year-old, who has slipped down the pecking order as Graham Potter rejigs his squad following the departure of Chris Hughton. The Whites are believed to view Knockaert, who has twice won promotion from the Championship, as a proven performer in the league and someone who would add both flair and creativity to their side.
Knockaert has scored 27 goals in 139 appearances for Albion and scored fifteen teams when Albion won promotion to the top flight in 2017. He won the Championship player of the season ahead that year, having already starred as Leicester won promotion in 2013/2014. He would join Ivan Cavaleiro and Martell Taylor-Crossdale as Scott Parker’s summer acquisitions Fulham prepare for their return to the Championship.
