Fulham should make a summer swoop for this £10.5m-rated Chelsea flop

Fulham will be hoping to take the Premier League by storm with their exciting brand of attacking football which took the Championship by storm last term.

The Cottagers, managed by Slavisa Jokanovic, will be hoping to use their already talented squad, mixed with some new signings, to make a big impact in the top flight and avoid any sort of scrap against relegation in the process.

However, there is little doubting new players will be needed to aid the likes of Ryan Sessegnon and Tom Cairney, and we here at the Transfer Tavern have been scouring the market looking for players we think might have an impact at Craven Cottage.

One player who has sprung to mind is Chelsea midfielder Marco Van Ginkel, who is remarkably still a Blues player, despite spending the majority of his time away from the club since arriving at the Bridge some five years ago.

However, the £10.5m-rated midfielder had a breakout campaign last season at PSV Eindhoven, and he contributed an impressive 14 goals for the Dutch side.

Still only 25, Van Ginkel clearly has plenty more to give despite his development already, and a move to a club like Fulham, who are looking to improve their squad, could well be a perfect switch.

It’s unlikely that Van Ginkel will be afforded the chance to impress with Chelsea, but the Blues’ loss should be Fulham’s gain, and he would slot in nicely into the midfield alongside the likes of Cairney and the impressive Kevin McDonald.

Fulham fans, what do you think? Would this be a good signing? Let us know in the comments!
