Fulham targeting deal for 23-year-old midfielder from top-flight club

Published

on

Fulham are interested in a deal for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Bruno Paz, a report from Portuguese outlet Record, via Sport Witness, has claimed.

The Cottagers have so far signed just two players this summer following their relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season, with attacker Harry Wilson and goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga joining on permanent deals from Liverpool and Tottenham respectively.

Now, with little more than two weeks remaining in the window, it seems Fulham are still keen to get some more deals done, one of which could be for Paz.

According to this latest update, Fulham will make an offer to Sporting Lisbon for Paz at the start of next week, and it seems the circumstances could be falling into place for a deal to happen.

It is thought that Sporting are willing to let the 23-year-old leave this summer, and that Fulham are trying to convince the Portuguese giants to let Paz move on a free transfer.

For their part, it is said that Sporting could allow Paz to leave on a free, but that they would want a €2.5million buyback clause in the deal, and a percentage of any future sale.

Chris Smalling joined Fulham from which club in the 2008-09 season?

A graduate of Sporting’s academy, Paz has so far made just one first-team appearance for the club, in the Europa League in 2018, and he currently has two years remaining on his contract with the Primeira Liga club.

The Verdict

This could prove to be a rather useful signing for Fulham to make you feel.

A midfielder has seemingly been on the agenda for the Cottagers this summer, and it does seem as though they could benefit from some extra reinforcements in that position.

Given his recruitment by a club the size of Sporting, it could also be argued that Paz has the potential to make an impact in the Championship, while it seems clear this deal would be affordable for a club such as Fulham.

At 23, Paz is also at an age where he will surely be wanting to start to make a name for himself at first-team level, so it does seem as though this could yet prove to be a deal that works well for all involved.
