This time last week, transfer speculation was suggesting that Fulham were interested in a midfielder who knows the Championship inside out.
An article we ran Click Here covered the speculation linking the 29-year-old Bournemouth midfielder, Harry Arter, with a move to Craven Cottage.
Here at Vital Fulham, we surmised it would be a good move if Fulham could seal a deal.
However, since our article appeared, the speculation has taken another twist.
According to the news source, the Independent two other clubs are now showing an interest in acquiring the services of the Republic of Ireland international with those clubs being Aston Villa and Stoke City.
But it is Villa’s interest that perturbs me.
After their Play-Off Final win against Derby County, at Wembley, I’d suggest that Dean Smith’s club may have the edge when it comes to Arter with the enticement of top-flight football.
Perhaps all we can hope for is our board to sell our club to Arter like never before and persuade him that life in our part of West London is close to Utopia.
