Fulham are interested in signing Derby County full-back Jayden Bogle, according to reports this afternoon.

The Football Insider claims that the young Rams right back is Scott Parker’s number one target as the Whites seek to strengthen their defence before their return to the Premier League next month. Other reports have suggested that the Londoners are looking to land the Nottingham Forest defender Matty Cash and have been preparing a £10m offer, with plans to send a Fulham player to the City Ground as part of the deal.

Bogle, who was released by Reading aged fourteen, was handed a senior debut by Frank Lampard in a 2-0 win over Oldham in the League Cup in August 2018. He went on to make 50 first-team appearances that year, scoring two goals, as Derby missed out on promotion when they lost in the play-off final to Aston Villa. The 20 year-old has become one of the Championship’s most consistent full-backs and 37 league appearances for the Rams as they finished six points behind sixth-placed Swansea in tenth despite a revival in the second half of the season that briefly hinted at making the play-offs.

Bogle, who has been capped by England at under-20 level, has previously interested West Ham, Crystal Palace and Brighton but Derby rebuffed several suitors by slapping a £10m valuation on the defender during the January transfer window. The youngster’s pace and sense of adventure make him a modern full-back in every sense and, with two years remaining on his current deal at Pride Park, Derby could drive a hard bargain if Fulham are serious about concluding a deal for this highly-rated prospect.
