Fulham have agreed a £10.6m fee with FC Twente for Bryan Ruiz, according to skysports.com. The Costa Rica star has netted an impressive 39 goals in 61 appearances. Capable of playing out wide or as a second striker, the 26 year old has been hugely impressive in his two years in Holland.
Tottenham were also believed to be keeping tabs on the forward earlier on in the transfer window. Fulham’s Martin Jol has landed his man though, the Dutchman has often stated his desire to add attacking options to a limited squad at Craven Cottage, particularly with recent reports linking Clint Dempsey with a move away.
Ruiz has made no secret of his desire to play in the Premier League; he said “Fulham is a serious option for me. That is also a Premier League side and it is a fantastic league”.
