Fulham eyeing Ujfalusi swoop

Fulham are poised to take advantage of the matchfixing scandal currently rocking Italian football by completing a deal to sign Czech defender Tomas Ujfalusi from Fiorentina.

The Viola have been relegated to Serie B and deducted twelve points for the forthcoming campaign for their part in the matchfixing scandal, which has also seen them banned for competing in the Champions’ League. Fulham had been rebuffed in their attempts to sign the Czech international prior to Fiorentina’s punishment being handed down, but the deal is reportedly back on after Ujfalusi expressed a desire for a new challenge rather than fighting his way out of the Italian second tier.

Fiorentina make big bid for Diop

Fiorentina are tracking Fulham star Papa Bouba Diop, according to Florence based newspaper ‘La Nazione’.

The 27 year old Senegal midfielder was one of the summer objectives of the purple outfit, however they were unable to convince the Premiership side to let go of one of their best players.

But, as reported by the Sun, Fulham are going through a cash crisis, and will need to sell one or more players in January in order to get the books in order again.

Fiorentina are ready to offer around 11 million Euros for Diop, that’s two million more than the amount Fiorentina’s biggest rivals for Diop’s signature, Arsenal, are willing to put on the table
