Fulham open negotiations with key player ahead of summer transfer window



Fulham have opened talks with Tosin Adarabioyo over a new deal, according to a report from The Sun.

Although the defender’s current contract is set to run until 2023, the Cottagers want him to sign fresh terms ahead of the club’s return to the Premier League.

Adarabioyo emerged as a potential target for Newcastle United in the previous transfer window.

However, the Magpies opted against making a move for the 24-year-old as they bolstered their options at centre-back by swooping for Dan Burn.

A key member of Fulham’s squad, Adarabioyo helped his side secure promotion to the top-flight by producing a host of assured displays in the Championship.

The Cottagers kept a total of 15 clean-sheets in the 41 league games that Adarabioyo participated in last season.

The former Manchester City man will now be keen to help his side achieve a relative amount of success in the Premier League next season.

Who does former Fulham man Harvey Elliott play for now?

It is understood that Fulham boss Marco Silva is keen to bolster his defensive options this summer as he looks to build a squad which is capable of competing in the top-flight.

Fulham opted to trigger the clauses included in Tim Ream and Neeskens Kebano’s contracts yesterday as this duo will now stay at the club until 2023.

The Verdict

It is hardly a surprise that the Cottagers are trying to convince Adarabioyo to commit his long-term future to the club as he certainly has the potential to become a classy operator in the top-flight.

The defender has already made 33 appearances in the Premier League during his career and thus will fancy his chances of hitting the ground running next season.

Having averaged an impressive WhoScored match rating of 7.02 in the Championship during the 2021/22 season, the defender could play a vital role for Fulham next season as they look to secure survival.

Given that the Cottagers were unable to avoid relegation in the 2019 and 2021, it will be intriguing to see whether they will be able to learn from the mistakes that they made in these particular seasons.
