Fulham are finding the Premier League tough to contend with and their team could still do with some improvements in the January transfer window.
Even though the Cottagers spent north of £100 million over the summer, Fulham sit just two points above the relegation zone and currently see themselves as the Premier League’s leakiest team, conceding 21 goals in just eight games.
The Daily Mirror though are reporting that Fulham could improve on their defensive woes by eyeing the addition of AC Milan centre-back Mateo Musacchio.
Despite forcing his way back into the team at AC Milan, the Cottagers are planning a move once again for the Argentinian defender so what could the consequences be for the current team…
Denis Odoi could make way for the 28-year-old
With Fulham currently adopting a back-three, someone will have to make way for Mateo Musacchio and that is likely to be Denis Odoi.
Despite making six Premier League appearances, he hasn’t warranted a permanent place within the team and neither have others in all honesty.
At 30-years-old, Odoi has never really asserted himself in the Fulham team and consequently, he could find he is the man to lose his spot in the team.
Alfie Mawson still without a chance
The signing of former Swansea defender Alfie Mawson was believed to be one of Fulham’s better deals over the summer but the Englishman has yet to make a name for himself in the white of Fulham as he’s been limited to just three appearances this season.
Whether or not he can have a successful spell with Fulham is still hopeful but with the possible signing of the AC Milan defender, it’s likely he will have to wait even longer for a proper chance.
