Reports from Ecuador claim that Fulham are interested in signing CSKA Sofia striker Jordy Caicedo.

The 24 year-old, who has won eight senior caps for his country, has been a regular goalscorer since moving to Bulgaria from Brazilian second tier side Vitória in 2020. He scored ten goals in nineteen appearances in his first season with the Reds, helping them win the Bulgarian Cup and finish in a club record third place in the top flight. Caicedo has been even more prolific this term – finding the net twenty times in 35 games as the Army sit in second place.

A number of European clubs are rumoured to be in talks with CSKA over Caicedo, with the Bulgarian side apparently resigned to losing him this summer. Suitors from France, Italy and Turkey have all baulked at CSKA’s asking price but Fulham are believed to be ready to strike a deal at around £4.62m, which would be agreeable to all parties. Caicedo, who shared the award for best foreign player in his first season in Bulgaria, is understood to be eager to play in England and excited at the prospect of performing in the Premier League with Marco Silva’s side currently top of the Championship.
