Decent read, Some good suggestions. Just read Boro want 15m for Adama Traore, I'd probably pay this all considered. If he continues his Boro form will be worth more than this in a couple of seasons.

Jokanović identifies Fulham transfer plan, up to €60m, dependent on promotion from Championship
By Lucas Sposito -  6th March 2018

When Fulham sent an official to watch Benfica’s league match against Marítimo last Saturday, the local press didn’t really know who the emissaries from London were keeping an eye on. But in a clarifying story today, Record brings the reason behind the scouting.

According to the outlet, the Championship side are interested in Serbian winger Andrija Zivkovic, who coincidentally had a great match on Saturday, scoring a goal.

Record claims that Zivkovic is ‘well rated’ by Fulham’s scouting department, and the club now think of making an attempt for the Benfica player in case they succeed in getting Premier League promotion this season.

Manager Slaviša Jokanović is the one who indicated the player, and that’s the reason why the club has been sending their scout from Portugal and Spain to watch Benfica so many times this season.

Fulham reportedly believe that besides the manager’s influence, the club’s good relationship with Benfica would help the transfer. The London side were recently involved in two deals with the Eagles: when buying Rui Fonte last year and when selling Konstantinos Mitroglou back in 2015.

But Record doesn’t mention how much Benfica would demand for the player. It’s worth recalling that his release clause currently stands at €60m, a price which would certainly have to be decreased for Fulham to get him.

We bought Rui Fonte from Braga though, not Benfica. Casts a bit of doubt over the whole article.

He was previously at Benfica so I imagine they had a sell on percentage or still owned some of his rights. In which case we would of had some negotiations with them as well as Braga. I could be wrong though.

That`s probably true.

Andrija Zivkovic would be a great piece of business, a great little player. As someone above said strikeforce of Sess, Mitro and Zivkovic would be lethal.

Entitled to your view, but in my opinion he was much better than Joe Hart when Hart was England's No 1 for Euro 2016 and was unlucky that Hodgson favoured loyalty and experience over form. He didn't have a good season, but nor had EDVS when we signed him from Juventus...

With that said, I'd love to see Betts play for us in the PL/

Good god, please no. We need Betts or a clear step up (Romero, for example) not somebody on their way down. Fraser Forster's next club, unfortunately, will be in the champ as he slowly Scott carsons it down the leagues.

Can we open a book as to the date the first post appears here from someone claiming he's worried that we haven't made any signings yet?

A Part Exchange For Mitrovic Is Possible – With This Player Coming To Newcastle

The Chronicle is reporting today that Newcastle are interested in signing Fulham right-back, Ryan Fredericks.

The 25-year-old has a three-year contract that runs out at the end of next month, and he and his agent are waiting to see what Fulham offer him to stay on at Craven Cottage and play in the Premier League.

Ryan was born and bred in London having been born in Hammersmith.

He started his career at his hometown club Tottenham Hotspur and eventually moved to Bristol City before joining the Cottagers on a three year deal in the summer of 2015.

And he says he would like to stay at Fulham after they were promoted last Saturday by beating Aston Villa 1-0 in the playoff final at Wembley.

Two London clubs West Ham United and Crystal Palace are also interested in signing the defender who has been at Fulham for three years and has played for them 114 times with 16 assists.

He did have a loan spell at Middlesbrough in the northeast in the 2014-2015 season and played for the Smoggies 19 times.

After beating Aston Villa on Saturday Fredericks had this to say:

“It’s up to the people behind the scenes but I’m sure everyone will want to stay and play at the highest level with Fulham and see what we can achieve.”

Newcastle do seem to have some leverage since Fulham want striker Aleksandar Mitrovic and the club could do a part exchange deal with Fredericks and cash coming Newcastle’s way.

But this will all depend on what Fulham offer Fredericks in a new contract and whether that’s acceptable to the right back.
