Fulham eye Chalobah loan deal

Fulham are lining up a loan move for the talented Chelsea teenager Trevoh Chalobah.

The nineteen year-old, who can play either in central defence or midfield, spent the 2018/2019 season with Ipswich, scoring twice in 43 appearances, in an ultimately disappointing campaign for the Portman Road club, who were relegated. Chalobah, the younger brother of Watford midfielder Nathaniel, has been linked with a loan move to West Brom already this summer and is likely to be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge on a temporary basis again to further his development.

Fulham successfully utilised the loan market during their last spell in the Championship and twice took Tomas Kalas and Lucas Piazon on loan from their local rivals. Chalobah, who was part of the England under-19 squad that won the European Championships in 2017 alongside Ryan Sessegnon, starred in the Chelsea youth set-up but has struggled for an opportunity at senior level, despite being named on the bench for the FA Cup final win over Manchester United in 2018 by Antonio Conte.

 Leeds star Pontus Jansson wanted by Fulham as Scott Parker plans promotion charge

FULHAM are targeting Leeds star Pontus Jansson as they look to add much needed steel to the club's defence.

The west Londoners struggled at the back last season, conceding more goals than any other Premier League team as they were relegated back to the Championship.

Scott Parker took charge of Fulham at the back end of the campaign and managed to steady the ship, albeit too late to avoid demotion.

Parker deployed Calum Chambers as holding midfielder ahead of his preferred centre back pairing of Tim Ream and Maxime Le Marchand.

But the Arsenal loanee has returned to his parent club and is unlikely to be back at Craven Cottage for a second campaign.

And according to Daily Telegraph football news correspondent Matt Law, Fulham want to bolster their defensive options by bringing in Jansson from Leeds.

"Hearing Fulham are very keen on trying to sign Pontus Jansson from Leeds," the journalist tweeted.

The Sweden international defender has plied his trade at Elland Road for the last three seasons, becoming something of a cult figure in the process.

But after yet another failed promotion bid, Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa is planning wholesale changes this summer.

The Argentine manager dropped Jansson for the Peacocks' dramatic play-off semi-final second-leg defeat to Derby.

And while he has spoken of his love for Leeds, a move to Fulham could prove tempting as he has just 12 months remaining on his contract.

"I think as a player you have to respect and know your club, know the history, know how big the club is," Jansson told FourFourTwo in May.

"I really know what this club means to people, so for me it's a responsibility; you have to do something for the club.

"I had an offer to leave last summer, and I said to my agent, ‘I don't want to leave Leeds in this way’.

"I didn't want people to remember me for negative things, thinking, ‘This guy didn't care about the club’."

Leeds paid Torino £3.5m for the 28-year-old, who spent six months on loan at the Yorkshire club at the club before making the move permanent in February 2017.

Leeds United Set To Confirm Sale of Fulham Target Pontus Jansson

Leeds United are set to confirm the exit of defender Pontus Jansson, who has been linked with Fulham, within the next 48 hours.

Jansson has been told not to report for pre-season training at Leeds until 12th July, a date which would mean him missing the club's tour to Australia.

It has further added to speculation that the centre-back will be on the move this summer and it appears Leeds are set to sell him soon.

There is an offer of £5.5m on the table for Jansson from an unnnamed English club, according to former Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Phil Hay.

The Whites are set to now confirm Jansson's exit from Elland Road within the next 48 hours.

Losing the powerful centre-back will be a blow for the Championship side and it remains to be seen if they have zeroed in on a replacement.

Jansson's committed displays for Leeds have seen him win the favour of many fans.

However, it is claimed that there has been a breakdown in the relationship between the player and the club.

He has been linked with Fulham this summer, while a switch to the Premier League has often been talked up for the Sweden international defender.

Brentford transfer activity should inspire Fulham hope in Ezri Konsa pursuit
Brentford appear to have secured two new centre-backs giving Fulham hope of a £12 million deal.

Fulham may have been given a boost in their transfer pursuit of England under-21 international Ezri Konsa.

It appears Brentford are closing in on a deal for Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson. West London Sport is reporting that the Swedish international could make a £5 million move this summer. The report claims Brentford are ‘close to sealing’ the transfer.

The Yorkshire Evening Post has suggested a fee closer to £5.5 million, but regardless, it seems Brentford have another centre-back arriving from Yorkshire.

The Bees have already secured a deal for Ethan Pinnock this summer. The Barnsley man joined in a deal reported by the Yorkshire Post to be worth £3 million.

This £8.5 million splurge on defenders could certainly give Fulham renewed hope of a transfer deal of their own.

Fulham, who themselves were recently linked with Jansson, are seemingly keen on the England under-21 international.

Sky Sports reported last week that the Cottagers are interested in meeting his £12 million release clause. That clause is reportedly not as cut and dry as bid and accept. Brentford are said to ‘have other contractual protections in place’ even if a rival meets the £12 million fee.

So it seems a deal is not automatic, if Fulham, for example, met the clause.

However, now that Brentford seemingly have replacements covered, such a deal has never looked more likely.

If Fulham are ready to raid their West London rivals, now might be the perfect time to do so.

WOLVES PLAYER ON THE VERGE OF MOLINEUX EXIT WITH CLUB SET TO SEAL LOAN DEAL

Fulham are set to sign Ivan Cavaleiro from Wolves, reports The Telegraph’s John Percy.

The move would see the winger join on a season-long loan with an option in place to make the move permanent should The Cottagers wish to.

The Portuguese player has been in-demand for much of the summer, with Huddersfield previously linked, but it seems Fulham have won the race to sign him.

Cavaleiro struggled for game time last season, making just 23 Premier League appearances, only six of which were starts.

The 25-year-old really impressed in his last spell in the Championship. His pace and direct style turned Wolves into a real attacking force after his £7m move from Monaco, and he played a big role in Wolves’ 2018 title win.

He scored nine goals and made 12 assists that season, and Fulham will hope he can contribute in a similar fashion in order to help them to promotion.

The Verdict

This is an astute signing from Fulham and their attacking options suddenly look a lot more threatening. Cavaleiro’s pace will be a great weapon this season and his ability to take on defenders should prove invaluable.

He is a great player to have when playing counter-attacking football too, so in those big matches away from home he could really be the decisive factor, and those matches are ultimately what decide promotion.

Cavaleiro knows the division too and he will be raring to go after a frustrating season mostly spent on the sidelines. If he can channel that energy into performances then he should be one to look out for this season.

EXCLUSIVE: Fulham leading chase for £5m Everton midfielder

Fulham are leading the chase to land Everton midfielder Mo Besic this summer, TEAMtalk understands.

The Bosnia international has been told he is not part of Marco Silva’s plans at Goodison Park, having spent the last 18 months on-loan at Middlesbrough.

Now Everton are looking to sell him and it is understood Fulham are set to meet the £5million asking price to land the 26-year-old – beating a host of clubs his signature.

German-born Besic is believed to have interest from the Bundesliga, Ligue 1 and Serie A – but he will turn down the chance to move to the continent to stay in England with Fulham.

The Cottagers are looking to rebuild this summer after being relegated from the Premier League last season.

FULHAM IDENTIFY PREMIER LEAGUE TRANSFER TARGET



Fulham has made contact with Premier League side Brighton about the potential signing of attacking midfielder Anthony Knockaert, The Sun has reported.

The London side are keen to make an immediate return to the Premier League following their relegation after just a single year in the top flight last season and have reportedly identified Knockaert as someone who can help them do that.

It is thought that Fulham see Knockaert as a player who can provide them with goals and creativity from the attacking wide areas, following the departures of Andre Schurrle and Ryan Babel, as well as Ryan Sessegnon’s anticipated move from Fulham.

Knockaert does have proven pedigree in winning promotion to the Premier League, having been named Championship Player of the Year in 2017 as Brighton finished runners up to Newcastle to secure promotion to the top flight.

While no official bid has been made, initial talks are said to have seen discussions about a £15million transfer fee, with Knockaert thought to be willing to take the step down to the Championship due to the prospect of an increase in his wages to £40,000 a week.

Since joining Brighton from Belgian side Standard Liege in January 2016, Knockaert has made 139 appearances and scored 27 goals in all competitions for the Seagulls.

There are currently three years remaining on the 27-year-old’s current contract at The AMEX Stadium, which is set to run until the summer of 2022.

The Verdict

What a signing this could be for Fulham.

Knockaert has already shown during his time at Brighton that he is more than capable of helping teams out of this division, and seems to be just what Fulham need as they look for a quick response to last season’s dismal relegation.

With Aleksandar Mitrovic having signed a new contract and a loan move for Wolves’ Ivan Cavaleiro apparently close to completion, adding Knockaert would surely complete a three-pronged attack that would cause problems for any defence in the division.

This would be a big statement from Fulham, and it is interesting to note the starting fee discussed sits at £15million, which appears to suggest that Fulham has not been put off spending big by the disastrous campaign that followed their big-spending summer of 12 months ago.

Report: Everton's Mo Besic wants to join Fulham in £5m move

Everton's Mo Besic is reportedly heading back to the Championship with Fulham despite Bundesliga and Serie A interest.

Everton midfielder Mo Besic could be on his way to Fulham, with TEAMtalk claiming that the Cottagers are leading the chase to sign the £5 million-rated Bosnian international.

It has been a busy day on the speculation front in West London. The Sun claims that Fulham are considering a £15 million move for Brighton and Hove Albion winger Anthony Knockaert who, just two years ago, was posing with the Championship Player of the Year award after a 15-goal season inspired the Seagulls to promotion.

Should he arrive, coupled with Besic’s addition in midfield, Scott Parker’s recently-relegated side would appear to have a far better chance of returning to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

After all, Besic will certainly provide the kind of bite a Fulham side who conceded 81 league goals last season so desperately need in central midfield.

Fulham are ready to pay his £5 million price-tag and the 26-year-old is willing to turn down clubs in France, Italy and Germany to seal a move to Craven Cottage.
 
This looks like quite the coup then, particularly as Besic has plenty of Championship experience in his locker now after spending the last 18 months hassling and harrying opposition forwards in the red of Middlesbrough.
