Swansea City have identified Fulham’s Ryan Fredericks as a key January transfer target with the right-back heading into the final six months of his contract.
Despite a mixed start to the season for the Cottagers, Fredericks has been a very consistent performer and it has caught the attention of the Premier League side according to Sky Sports.
New Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal is believed to have prioritised the signing of a right-back in the new window and whilst the Londoners would be reluctant to sell, his contract situation puts the club in a tricky situation.
Should Fredericks not agree a new deal at Craven Cottage he would be able to leave the club on a free in the summer. Therefore, the possibility of cashing in on the player whilst they have a chance may appeal to the Fulham hierarchy.
The former Spurs player joined his current side from Bristol City back in 2016 and has managed to establish himself as one of the best attacking full-backs outside the top-flight.
Losing Fredericks would be a massive blow for Fulham and it’s really poor that they’ve let his contract run down.
Whether a move to Swansea, given their situation, is a step up is debatable as there’s still a chance that the two sides could switch divisions come May. Plus, Fredericks may have plenty more attractive offers on the table.
For Fulham it’s probably worth taking the risk and not selling the right-back on the cheap as they are unlikely to get a better replacement and he could be key to a late promotion push.
