Report: Fulham still haven’t matched valuation of player once compared to Neymar, talks to continue today
The Dutch winger has been linked with a move to Craven Cottage for the past several weeks.
An agreement with the player is already in place, but the two clubs have yet to finalise a fee, with Roma unwilling to accept a £2.5m bid plus add-ons for Kluivert.
Kluivert’s agent is now in London today to try and ‘unlock the transfer’, with all parties hoping to reach an agreement.
Kluivert was once compared to Neymar as an emerging talent at Ajax, but has yet to rediscover that form outside of the Netherlands.
Fulham yet reach agreement for Kluivert
Fulham have had a steady start to life back in the Premier League after winning the Championship last season.
Silva handed academy prospect Jay Stansfield a first league start on Saturday, and although he delivered an impressive performance, Fulham need more cover in that area.
Kluivert would certainly provide that as a right-footed left winger, as he could adapt to playing on either side.
Fulham are still trying to strengthen in other areas, and are in pole position to bring a Premier League striker to the club.
They’ve also been allowing Willian to train at the club, and a move for the Brazilian is still under consideration.
