Newly promoted Premier League side Fulham are considering making a summer move for AJ Auxerre midfielder Lamine Fomba.

The London outfit edged out Aston Villa in the Championship playoff final with a narrow 1-0 win on Saturday at Wembley to book their place in next season’s Premier League.

Fulham joined Wolves and Cardiff in the top tier for next term and the club are already planning their summer recruitment as they look to build a squad good enough to survive in the top flight.

Owner Shahid Khan is expected to back manager Slavisa Jokanovic in the market and it has been claimed that the Cottagers are looking at France to bring in players for their squad.

According to French sports daily L’Equipe, Auxerre midfielder Fomba has emerged as a target for Fulham, who are aware of the need to add steel to the middle of the park.

Poor old Diego didn't have a great time of it after turning us down. He got 2 goals in LaLiga after Christmas but had a load of injury problems. His club were relegated. He didn't make the Uruguay WC squad.

The bloke we did get netted 12 goals for a team that got promotion and is off to Russia with Serbia.

Still, ne'er mind, eh?

I mean, the bloke we got instead was Fonte, who managed a mighty 3 goals for one of the top scoring sides in the championship.

Ah, yes. Must be getting me windows confused.
At least Rui looks happy.

Mitrovic & Targett should be the first signings. Followed by Norwood a dominant CB & a strong creative CMF. Love Johansen but we should aim for the next class above.

#FFC #NUFC Permanent deal for Mitrovic looking extremely likely. Source close to the club says they intend on doing business quickly.

Dean Jones of Bleacher Report, who's also a Fulham supporter claims that we want Aden Flint this summer.

On a side note, Shaqiri's relegation clause at Stoke means that he's available for £12m which is something I think we should look at, seeing as we need a good RW this summer.

I think we should be aiming higher than Flint imo.

Aden Flint is very high, he has to be at least 6ft 5ins from the ground, which makes him very tall for his height.

Me, too. A decent CB, Flint, not very mobile, he would give us something a bit different. But, at this stage, I'd sooner see us aiming for a bit better quality than an English CB from the Championship who has never interested the England set up (England C is for non-league players).

Flint has been linked with us quite often, so I focused on him when we played Bristol City. Dominant in the air, but doesn't have the composure to play it out of the back. In fact, I remember two occasions where he booted the ball out of play without being pressured at all. Also remember him being turned around easily by Sess. Don't think he is much better than Dan Burn and doesn't fit our style, even though his aerial presence is elite.

Shaqiri would be amazing and show real intend by Mr Khan. Obviously he'll only come at a huge wage, but that's what the PL is all about. Anytime I looked up PL scores this season, Shaqiri has been involved in all Stoke goals despite being part of a horrible side. He is a headcase but pure quality. He has the edge and special flair that can decide a game. Also RW is a big need for us. Maybe Jokane could bring the best out of him just like with Mitro. Of course we could buy 3 highly talented wingers from France for the price tag of Shaqiri. But he is a proven worldclass player who has been one of the best in the PL in recent years. Stoke being relegated is a huge opportunity to snap him up.

Linked to this guy again (HITC though who are a joke / straw-clutching fantasists): http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2018/05/29/por-fulham-fancy-bristol-city-ace-flint/

Personally I’d like to see us go for ball playing CBs with proven Prem experience such as Alfie Mawson and (maybe at a stretch) Jonny Evans - both in relegated teams so maybe more willing to switch to us? Jonny Evans would command high wages (not sure on contract length so can’t comment of transfer fee), but is a leader / is underrated as a ball player and would certainly improve our team - should Kahn match his comments about willingness to meet our managers ambition in the transfer market.

Further to the Mitro thing, GWL or Football London were reporting that Joka is at the Serbia WC training camp and told Serbian media that he wants to sign Mitro this summer and that the clubs are in talks about it.

Centre back, left back but above all right sided forward needed.   

Shaqiri would be a real prestige signing.  My only worry would be as to whether he's a bit of a luxury for a newly promoted side which needs to re-establish itself in the division.  Would he, for instance, work back to defend and help out his full back?  Isn't he in any event left footed?

We need a new Simon Davies.

Maybe he is having a chat with some of the other players as well?

We should be aiming better than Flint in the CB position.
Shaqiri would be a big statement of intent, Would be a top signing.
