Transfer window revolving door at Craven Cottage?
Fulham boss Martin Jol could be set to bring two new faces in at Craven Cottage with the signing of Julian Malanda, Banel Nicolita and Jores Okore, but looks like losing one with Pajtim Kasami on his way out of the club.
Jol is on the trail of Belgian teenager Malanda, a Belgian under-19 international who has impressed with him performances in the Belgian top-flight for Zulte Waregem this season both in defence and as a holding midfield player.
The 18-year-old, who has attracted interest from Belgian rivals Club Brugge, Genk and Anderlecht, Dutch sides Ajax and FC Twente, Italians Udinese and Premier League Tottenham, Newcastle United, Everton and Fulham, is expected to cost Fulham £3million, according to The Mirror.
The Mirror also report that 28-year-old Romanian winger Nicolita is on his way to Fulham from French side St Etienne. “I understand there is a long-term interest,” he said. “There are no reasons why I cannot leave and I would like to play in England.”
Jores Okore, a 20-year-old defender with Nordsjaelland in Denmark, is also wanted by Newcastle United and Manchester United, but Fulham are the first to place an official offer with a £5million bid on the table for the Danish international, the Daily Mail report.
Meanwhile, Kasami is set to leave Craven Cottage after becoming disillusioned with a lack of opportunities. The Swiss under-21 international has warmed the bench for much of the season and is wanted by Bundesliga side Wolfsburg, according to the Daily Star.
