According to Fabrizio Romano, Justin Kluivert is closer to signing for Fulham, as the London side are on the verge of a loan agreement with Roma. The deal will include an obligation to buy clause at the end of the season, as the Dutchman is set for an entry into the Premier League. Fulham are ensuring they have a solid squad for contending the rigours of the Premier League. The Cottagers are set to end the summer window on a high note, with as many as three new players set to arrive.
They are closing in on the signing of veteran star Willian, while a deal for Layvin Kurzawa is also inching closer.
Now, the Cottagers are on the verge of finalising a move for Justin Kluivert, as a move for the attacker seems imminent. Kluivert, who remains a Roma player, spent the previous season on loan at OGC Nice, scoring four goals and providing 5 assists in 27 Ligue 1 appearances. His displays have since attracted Fulham into considering a move during this window.
Fulham had reportedly reached an agreement with Roma earlier this month, but the move seems to be slowing down due to unknown factors. However, things seem to have cleared up as the Dutchman’s loan transfer seems imminent.
Fulham are on the verge of agreeing on a loan move for Kluivert and will have an obligation to buy clause inserted as part of the deal. The fee could be around the €10 million range. Considering his age and profile, it will be considered a good deal for the Cottagers.
Roma were keen on selling the attacker in this window, as they could focus on using the guaranteed money to strengthen their squad. It’s a pretty good deal for the Italians, although Fulham are getting their hands on an exciting talent needing to be unleashed on the big stage.
