The Fulham fans in and around the Transfer Tavern are eagerly awaiting the start of the new Premier League season having seen their beloved club gain promotion via the play-offs.
In what was a long and strenuous season, Fulham made it through and reached their ultimate goal of Premier League football once again, the first time since 2014. The Cottagers are already well equipped, possessing some great talents within their ranks but our punters feel that signing Saido Berahino would raise a few eyebrows yes but could work out to be a great signing.
Fulham transformed the talent of Aleksandar Mitrovic last season, when the Newcastle loanee joined the club to help their promotion bid. So why can’t the same happen with Saido Berahino? His future doesn’t look particularly bright at the moment but given the right now in the next step in his career could make all the difference. Valued at £7.2 million on Transfermarkt, Berahino is isolated currently with Stoke, having failed to score since move to the recently relegated Potters. Slavic Jokanović has shown how he can take another failing striker and turn them into a goal-scorer and based on the ability Berahino has previously shown, why can’t it be another success story.
The Englishman is thought to be available this summer and although the negative connotations associated with Berahino are bad, Fulham could undo all those and turn him into the player everyone believed he always would be.
It is a bold move to say the least but Saido Berahino does have the knowledge of Premier League football, unlike a lot of Fulham players.
Would it be worth the risk… Let us know!
