Fulham round-up: Three could arrive in busy window finale

A selection of news and gossip from Fulham.

Chambers set to sign

Fulham have already bolstered their defensive ranks this summer with the captures of Alfie Mawson and Maxime Le Marchand but another deal is on the verge of completion, which will see Calum Chambers move to Craven Cottage.

The Mirror states Arsenal have agreed a deal to send the 23-year-old defender on loan to Fulham for the forthcoming Premier League season, a move that is considered a surprise considering his standing at the Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal are keen for the versatile Chambers to enjoy regular playing time this season and believe his opportunities will be better in west London.

Boyata to replace Kalas

Despite signing Mawson and having a deal for Chambers on the brink of completion, Fulham are still eyeing further defensive additions and have reportedly tabled an offer to snatch Dedryck Boyata from Scottish champions Celtic.

The Times states Fulham have submitted a £9m bid to lure the Belgium World Cup ace back to the Premier League, where he previously spent time with Manchester City, but Celtic are keen to retain the services of the 27-year-old.

Fulham want Boyata to replace Tomas Kalas, who returned to Chelsea this summer after two seasons on loan at the club.

 

Williams on his Fulham stint

While Fulham prepare for life back in the Premier League, former full-back George Williams is looking to get his career back on track after joining League Two side Forest Green Rovers in an attempt to earn more regular playing opportunity.

The Wales international worked his way up from the youth ranks into the first-team at Craven Cottage and enjoyed regular football in the 2015-16 season before injury and a new manager changed the scene, as he revealed in his exclusive interview with TBRFootball.

“Kit Symons was the manager, and I remember a time if we had won a game we were going to move into just outside the playoffs… I was injured, there was a change of manager, he brought in his own players and I came back from injury trying to get back into the team— it was hard.”

Selnaes has to be a permanent deal

Fulham’s transfer business has caught the eye for the right reasons this summer and Slavisla Jokanovic’s side are hoping to land another midfielder before the window slams shut on Thursday in the form of Norway international Ole Selnaes.

The Cottagers are reported to be keen on signing the highly-rated defensive midfield on loan from St Etienne but TeamTalk states the French side have rejected that approach, instead making it clear any deal would have to be a permanent switch.

Fulham will now consider whether to bring the 24-year-old in on a permanent basis and will have to make a decision quickly.
