Fulham’s name keeps cropping up inside the Football Transfer Tavern, and Simon Jones of the Daily Mail has stopped by to inform us of their latest transfer target, one that has got many fans excited.
Martin Jol is reportedly lining up a loan move for AC Milan midfielder Urby Emanuelson. The 26-year-old Dutch international is capable of playing in midfield, at left back or on the wing.
Emanuelson has grown frustrated at the San Siro this season, often not making the starting line up and unable to find a settled position in the side.
Jol is hoping he can persuade his fellow countryman to make the switch to Craven Cottage for the remainder of the season as he bids to halt Fulham’s alarming dip in form.
The Cottagers have won just two of their last 18 games in all competitions, and sit just six points above tge drop zone.
Emanuelson is understood to be in London to undergo a medical.
The deal is understood to be all but done, with the Dutchman tweeting last night: “A strange day… Leaving Milano for London… Tomorrow we know more.”
He is set to become Fulham’s second loan signing of the January transfer window, following their move for Arsenal’s Emmanuel Frimpong last week.
However, it does appear Fulham are set to miss out on another target, with it emerging that Belgian striker Igor de Camargo has snubbed a move to Craven Cottage to stay in Germany and join relegation threatened Hoffenheim.
Hoffenheim sporting director Andreas Mueller said: “We hope to have a stronger strikeforce with Igor up front.
“He can play an important role for us with his quality and Bundesliga experience.”
