Fulham have agreed an initial fee of around £5m with Wolfsburg to sign Swiss international full back Kevin Mbabu, according to various reports tonight.

Marco Silva is keen to add a right back to his squad ahead of the new Premier League season with doubts surrounding Kenny Tete’s form and fitness. Mbabu, who is eager to return to England having previously played for Newcastle United, has won 22 senior caps for his country and made 82 appearances for Wolfsburg after moving from Young Boys, for whom he won successive Swiss titles, in 2019. The 27 year-old defender featured in 31 matches last term – including six Champions’ League fixtures – scoring a single goal.

Mbabu’s representatives will finalise personal terms with Fulham ahead of a medical, although Wolfsburg are said to be confident that the deal can be completed fairly swiftly.
