Report: Fulham interested in £13m international winger, could be Wilson’s injury replacement

Fulham are interested in a move for Roma winger Justin Kluivert, according to TuttoMercatoWeb.

The Italian website claim that Fulham and Serie A side Torino are interested in the Dutch forward.

A report from Il Tempo yesterday confirmed that Kluivert was no longer a part of Jose Mourinho’s plans and is not training with the rest of the first team squad.

The Dutch international and son of legendary forward Patrick Kluivert spent last season on loan at OGC Nice, where he scored four goals and supplied five assists in 27 appearances.

However, it is now clear on his return to Italy that his time in the Italian capital is up, and newly promoted Fulham sense an opportunity.

Kluivert isn’t the first Italian-based player Fulham have chased this summer, after missing out on defender Alessio Romagnoli.

Fulham interested in Kluivert

Marco Silva’s side have been slow to act in the transfer market this summer, bringing in only four players so far.

A move for Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno has been weeks in the making, and reports suggest he’s having his medical at Motspur Park today.

Aside from strengthening their squad, Fulham also have a fresh concern with the news that key player Harry Wilson has picked up an injury.

It’s no surprise Fulham are interested in Kluivert given his versatility to play on either wing.

It makes him a good option to replace Wilson in the short-term, as well as challenge Neeskens Kebano and new signing Manor Solomon over the course of the season.

Fulham aren’t the only Premier League side who have been credited with interest in Kluivert this summer, with West Ham reportedly considering a £13m move for the 23-year-old.
