Leicester City are planning to make a move for Ademola Lookman should Fulham fail to stay up this season, according to the Sunday Mirror (11/4; page 70).
Lookman has arguably been one of the standout performers for Scott Parker’s side this term. He has scored four goals and contributed four assists.
Their form after a dreadful start has left them just three points off safety. Crucially however, they have played two more games than Newcastle.
And should they get relegated, Fulham can surely expect a number of their players to be targeted by others.
One member of their current squad they will be powerless over is Lookman. The Sunday Mirror (11/4; page 70) notes that Fulham’s hopes of keeping the RB Leipzig winger will likely depend on whether they beat the drop.
And should they make an immediate return to the Championship, Leicester would be interested in offering Lookman the chance to remain in the Premier League.
The report claims that he would like to stay in England’s top flight as he does not feature in Leipzig’s plans.
As things stand, it does appear that Fulham are in serious danger of going down. Their momentum has evaporated and they have now lost their last four.
Newcastle’s form has not been much better. But they have only lost one of their last five. And those two games in hand could be vital.
