Sky Bet Championship side Fulham have completed the signing of Chelsea forward Martell Taylor-Crossdale on a two-year deal, the London club have now confirmed.
The Cottagers have been busy in the transfer market this week, with Scott Parker bringing in Ivan Cavaleiro on loan for Wolves to add firepower to his side’s attack ahead of next season.
They have now brought another exciting attacker into the club, with 19-year-old Taylor-Crossdale putting pen to paper at Craven Cottage following the expiry of his contract at Stamford Bridge.
The young forward had been linked with a move to German Bundesliga side Hoffenheim, but will now join up with Fulham’s under-23 side as he looks to break into the first-team in the future.
Taylor-Crossdale was a prolific goalscorer during his time with Chelsea, scoring six goals in eight games in the 2017/18 Premier League 2 campaign. He also finished as the top goalscorer in Under-18 Premier League 16/17 season.
He has caught the eye on the international scene too, and was part of the England under-18s squad that lifted the Toulon Tournament Trophy back in 2017.
Taylor-Crossdale is a player that has really caught the eye for Chelsea over the last few years, and looks to be a real talent.
He has scored plenty of goals at youth level, for both club and country, and a move to Fulham is a perfect move for him given how they have nurtured young players over the last couple of years.
Fulham have a knack of developing really talented youngsters, with Ryan Sessegnon attracting interest from the likes of Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain of late.
Another young player, Harvey Elliott, has also been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool, so Taylor-Crossdale will be hoping to follow in their footsteps and make a real name for himself at Craven Cottage.
