Charlton Athletic

The League One star that Fulham should rival Arsenal and Chelsea for this summer



Fulham are flying at the moment as they approach the Championship play-offs.

All thoughts ahead of the summer will be suspended until after the play-offs but soon they will know whether they will be a Premier League club or a Championship club next season.

Either way, Fulham will be looking to bring in some new faces in the summer.

The Cottagers will probably be looking at defensive targets primarily as they look to tighten up at the back.

One target they should be pursuing is highly rated, in-demand Charlton Athletic starlet Ezri Konsa.

Ezri Konsa is both one for the future and one for the present: he is probably good enough to be competing in the Championship next season but he is a really exciting future prospect.

Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City have all tracked the 19-year-old but Fulham could be the perfect next step for the talented teenager.

After watching the meteoric rise of 16-year-old prodigy Ryan Sessegnon, Konsa might be tempted to stay local and play for Fulham.

The England under 20 international established himself as a regular in the Charlton squad by the end of this season with some dominant and mature displays at centre half.

Despite his young age, Konsa is showing that he has the ability to compete at a high level in senior football and he will only get better.

Whether Fulham go up or stay in the Championship, this is a transfer worth considering and Konsa might be tempted to make the gradual step up to the Premier League rather than be one of many in a Premier League giant’s academy.

Fulham fans – would you sign Konsa? Could you land him ahead of the PL big boys? Let us know below…
