Fulham are keen on bringing Romanian teenage full back Andrei Borza to England this summer, according to the Sun.

The 17 year-old is one of the brightest talents to emerge from the Gheorge Hagi academy, set up by the Romanian legend who now manages Farul Constan?a, in 2009. Farul won the first top flight title in the club’s 103 year history this season and Borza was both a regular in the side and a creative force from his left back role. Fulham’s scouts watched him regularly throughout the historic campaign as the youngster contributed three goals and three more assists in 35 assists.

The defender, who has already been capped at under-20 level by his country, set up Farul’s first goal in their fantastic fightback from 2-0 down against FCSB. Farul roared back to win 3-2 and seal the title in front of their delirious fans and Fulham are moving fast to beat off competition from Dutch outfit PSV Eindhoven. Borza, who penned his first professional contract, is believed to be flattered by interest from England and the Whites hope to add him to his squad for an initial fee of around £2m.

Marco Silva is looking for reinforcements at left back with Layvin Kurzawa poised to return to Paris Saint Germain after an injury-hit loan spell at Craven Cottage and Joe Bryan set to sign for Bristol City when his Fulham contract expires at the end of the month. It is likely that Borza will initially join the ranks of Fulham’s category one academy, but the club believe he could easily make the step up to the first team to provide competition for American international Antonee Robinson.
