1.1 dribbles per game: The Reading ace that could thrive with newly-promoted Fulham



Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic will be looking to add to his squad as they prepare for their first Premier League campaign since the 2013/14 season.

Many observers will feel the Cottagers are well equipped to staying in the top-flight given the quality they have in their ranks, with the likes of Tom Cairney and Ryan Sessegnon standout players.

However, there’s no doubt that they need a few additions to their squad, even if it’s players just to boost the overall group.

And, one potential signing could be Reading’s John Swift.

As our graphic shows, the midfielder didn’t have the best of seasons in the previous campaign, weighing in with just two goals and one assist in 24 games. However, he did suffer with injuries and he has shown in the past he can be a very productive player.

Yet, even without that final product, the stats shows that he still has been getting involved in the games with his dribbling, shots and tackles.

As well as that, he has great technique which suits the style of play that Jokanovic demands.

Importantly, he is only 22-years old and has a lot of time to improve too. Fulham have built a young, dynamic side and it could be the perfect environment for him to flourish and fulfil his potential.

The London side are sure to have a busy summer and even though signing Swift wouldn’t grab all the headlines, he could be a very smart addition for their Premier League campaign.
