Fulham are hoping to sign Welsh winger Rabbio Matondo this summer after the former Manchester City man starred on loan at Cercle Brugge this season.

The 21 year-old, who has won nine senior international caps, enjoyed a superb season on loan in Belgium, scoring ten goals and creating two more in 27 appearances as the Green and Blacks finished tenth in the regular season, which was their best domestic league placing for a decade. Matondo finished the campaign as the club’s top scorer – having made the temporary switch after playing just 32 times in three years at Schalke.

Cercle Brugge do have an option to turn their loan arrangement into a permanent deal this summer but Fulham are making a strong play to lure the right winger back to England after he spent spells with Cardiff City and Manchester City. The Liverpool-born wide man is believed to interested in a chance to play Premier League football and Fulham boss Marco Silva is an apparent admirer of Matondo’s speed and dribbling ability.

The Whites are kind to add depth in the wide positions as they prepare to return to the top flight and Matondo would be a direct option as an understudy to his compatriot Harry Wilson, who enjoyed an outstanding first season at Craven Cottage.
