Craven Cottage boss keen on former Chelsea man.
Fulham, according to reports in today’s press, are lining up former Chelsea winger Scott Sinclair, who currently plays for newly promoted Swansea, as a replacement for Moussa Dembele who looks like he may be joining Tottenham.
The Daily Mirror are the ones running with this story and even by their standards it really is a stretch.
For this all to happen, Tottenham would have to first sign Dembele and there is absolutely no indication of that happening, Swansea would have to agree to see Sinclair and both Dembele and Sinclair would have to agree to the moves.
Last summer Scott Sinclair took the brave option to take a step down after failing to break into the Chelsea starting eleven and it’s a move that has stood the Swansea City striker in good stead. Last term the England Under 21 international notched up 27 goals and helped his side into the top tier and this term has impressed with his performances leading the line at the Liberty Stadium.
Now it appears that £8m rated Swansea City man has the chance to return to London as Martin Jol takes an interest in the 22 year old and sees the Bath born attacker as a possible replacement for Moussa Dembele, who may or may not be of interest to Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp.
Aside from interest in Dembele the Craven Cottage boss may need to bring in further attacking options as Andy Johnson is still to sign a new deal and could be free to leave for nothing next summer.
