From Argentina: Fulham open talks to sign player, seen as obvious destination if he moves

From Argentina: Fulham open talks to sign player, seen as obvious destination if he moves

Following a couple of reports from the European press about this chase, journalist Hernan Castillo turns up to comment on it.

On Twitter, the report claims that in case Montiel does not stay at Sevilla, then he’s going to Fulham.

The Whites are said to be in current negotiations with the La Liga side for the 26-year-old. It turns out that Fulham haven’t been the only Premier League club to chase Montiel this month, as recent reports from Spain had claimed that Unai Emery’s Aston Villa had been following him as well.

It’s been claimed that Sevilla demand €12m for Montiel’s sale, and they were actually not happy that their former director Monchi was trying to take him to Villa Park.

Maybe that situation could end up favouring Fulham in their chase. Now it remains to be seen whether the Whites offer will be good enough to convince the Spanish club. With the Argentine media reporting on it, it seems the subject already reached the player’s camp.

As well as Hudson-Odoi another ‘sensational’ Chelsea player could end up at Fulham – journalist

Fulham and Chelsea have something of a strange rivalry.

For some fans, this is the west London derby, this is the rivalry that matters more than any other and bragging rights are there to be won or lost every time these two teams meet.

However, unlike most other rivalries of this ilk, these two clubs don’t have any issues in terms of doing business with one another.

The likes of Gael Kakuta, Tomas Kalas, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Lucas Piazon have all crossed this divide in recent years, and now, we could be set to see two more players swap Stamford Bridge for Craven Cottage.

Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly closing in on a move to Fulham, while according to Dean Jones, speaking on The Done Deal Show, Fulham are also having a look at Armando Broja.

Broja to Fulham an option

Jones shared what he knows about the ‘sensational’ Chelsea star.

“I think we will get a good gauge on it on whether or not Broja will be able to speak to other clubs or not. That would be the one to make way. Right now with Nicolas Jackson you’re thinking Broja is the main backup and alternate option there. West Ham have had an eye on Broja for a while and Fulham are having tentative steps around looking at the Broja perspective,” Jones said.

Mitrovic replacement

This isn’t surprising at all.

Fulham will soon be in the market for a new striker as Aleksandar Mitrovic closes in on a move to Al-Hilal, and it looks like Broja could be an option.

A physical striker who suits Fulham’s style, Broja could be the perfect Mitrovic replacement for the Whites.

He’s proven in the Premier League, and he could well be available after Chelsea’s spending spree this summer.

Fulham could do much worse than replacing Mitrovic with Broja.
