Bordeaux have launched an ambitious bid to loan Fulham full back Antonee Robinson despite their financial difficulties, according to reports from France this afternoon.

The Ligue One side are keen to offer the American international a top flight opportunity after his impressive Premier League performances last season. The 23 year-old left back made 33 appearances in all competitions in his first year at Craven Cottage after signing from Wigan last summer but was unable to prevent Fulham from an immediate return to the Championship.

New manager Marco Silva is understood to be keen to keep Robinson at the club, despite rumoured interest from Wolves and Manchester City. Bordeaux’s audacious attempt to take the former Everton trainee on loan is likely to be undermined by the fact that they will unable to match Robinson’s Fulham wages, believed to be in excess of £40,000 a week.
