The Solomon Saga Continues…

This summers long drawn out transfer saga involving Fulham may be coming to an end, at least that’s the case according the Israeli outlet Sport5.

Talks between both Shakhtar Donetsk and Fulham are ongoing and Israeli international Manor Solomon has already expressed his desire to play in the Premier League. It’s been a few days since agent shill Fabrizio Romano reported that the deal had completed collapsed.

As long as the club doesn’t sort them out with Wimbledon tickets only to get mugged off and see him move to Deportivo…

Fulham Monitor Yarmolenko

Per Turkish journalist Ekrem Konur, Fulham are monitoring Andriy Yarmolenko who is set to become a free agent after four years on the east side of London at West Ham United.

The 32-year-old Ukrainian winger has over 100 caps for his country and is a 4 time winner of the Ukraine Player of the Year award. His £17m move to West Ham following a year at Borussia Dortmund hasn’t seen him match the performances of his price tag with his time at the London Stadium affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, project restart and now the war in his home country.

Much of the early transfer window whispers have connected Fulham to the free agent market.

Fulham Join Rothwell Race

According to the BBC’s Ian Dennis, Fulham are looking to rival Bournemouth and Rangers for the signing of Joe Rothwell as a free agent with his contract at Blackburn expiring this summer.

The forward thinking midfielder with an aptitude of gliding with the ball in the middle has been one of the understated players in the Championship this season with teammate Ben Brereton-Diaz gaining all of the neutral plaudits at the Lancashire club.

The 27 year old central midfielder is coming off a career season for goal contributions with 3 goals and 10 assists in his last campaign.

Anguissa Moves On

After weeks of speculation that Napoli would take the option on Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa’s loan move, both Fulham and the Italian side confirmed this afternoon that the Cameroon international would stay in Serie A. Per Peter Rutzler of the Athletic, the move will net Fulham €17.3m which is just shy of £15m.

The exit of the marmite midfielder adds to Fabio Carvalho’s move to Liverpool of a potential £7.7m, perhaps boosting the potential incoming budget for Marco Silva and Tony Khan to work with.

Fulham Look To Lazio Keeper

One of the talking points of the pre-summer window is the goalkeeper positions. Reports in Italy this morning suggest Fulham are on the verge of signing Lazio’s Thomas Strakosha to come in and compete for the no.1 position. The Greek born Albanian international has 11 clean sheets in 29 games for a Lazio team looking to hold off fierce rivals Roma for 5th place in Serie A.

Thomas’ father Foto Strakosha was also an Albanian keeper playing 73 times for the national side over a 15 year international career whilst his 20 year playing career saw him play for Olympiacos when Thomas was born.

Thomas at 27 is already having a glittering career of his own with 19 Albania caps and has been Lazio’s number one for the majority of the past six years. He has 2 Coppa Italia’s and 2 Supercoppa Italiana’s in his 6 seasons at the Stadio Olimpico having played in 3 of the fixtures and on the bench for his earliest Coppa Italia win in 2013.

The move would be a free transfer as Thomas Strakosha’s contract is ending in the summer seeing Fulham add to a goalkeeper room with Marek Rodak and Paolo Gazzaniga.
