Fulham could be facing a difficult task to keep hold of their star players this summer.
Reports from The Sun have claimed that Wolverhampton Wanderers have joined Manchester City in the race to sign Antonee Robinson ahead of the new season.
The 23-year-old only moved to Craven Cottage last summer but enjoyed a strong debut season in which he made 32 appearances for Scott Parker’s side as they battled away in the Premier League.
Unfortunately Robinson’s efforts couldn’t contribute to the club avoiding relegation, but they have seemingly attracted the attention of two of the top flight’s most respected clubs.
If Robinson does move on then Fulham have to deal with the aftermath of the sale, so here are two knock-on effects for new head coach Marco Silva to handle.
An opportunity for Joe Bryan
If Antonee Robinson does move on then it may that he replacement is already in the building.
Joe Bryan enjoyed a wonderful campaign for Fulham in the Championship two years ago and the feeling will be that he could be the man to fill that left back role again this term.
If that is the case then it could be great for the Whites who won’t have to worry about spending big money on a suitable replacement.
Funds to rebuild
A move away for Antonee Robinson will certainly be a boost for Fulham’s coffers.
Any move to Wolves or Manchester City would bring a substantial fee to the club and that’s something which could be a massive plus in the coming months.
Whether the club looks to reinvest those funds or not, Robinson will surely attract an 8-figure fee and for a club in the Championship that will be significant.
