Sky Bet Championship outfit Fulham have added fire power to their striking options with the capture of 28-year-old forward Yohan Mollo, as announced on the club’s official website.
The ex-France under-21 international has signed a two-year deal upon his arrival at Craven Cottage and arrives as a free agent.
Mollo, whose become a journeyman over Europe, was released by Russian giants Zenit St. Petersburg, his contract being terminated by mutual consent, but has taken less than 24 hours to find a new home.
Having begun his career at AS Monaco in the southern depths of France, he has also endured a spell in Spain prior to making the move to Russia in 2016 originally to sign for second division side Krylia Sovetov.
Yohan Mollo penned a deal at Zenit back in January before controversially departing the club on Wednesday.
He becomes the twelve addition at Fulham this summer and joins fellow strikers Rui Fonte and Aboubakar Kamara through the doors at Craven Cottage in recent weeks.
It would seem Yohan Mollo has struggled to settle down at any of his previous clubs, which doesn’t sound too surprising considering his uninspiring goal scoring credentials.
Fulham have given the Frenchman a second chance, despite unprofessional gestures to supporters during his time at Zenit which abruptly led to his exit from the Russian team.
Cottagers’ fans, what do you make of this signing? Does his record sound promising or a signal of desperation? Is he a certain starter or need to improve himself first? Tell us your thoughts in the comment section below!
