Preparations for Fulham’s return to top-flight football continue to provide us, the supporters, with some interesting pieces of transfer speculation.

The latest to grab our interest relates to the possible signing of a defender, with the player in question being Dedryck Boyata.

According to the popular tabloid publication, the Sun, Fulham are looking at bringing the Belgian international defender to Craven Cottage.

Boyata, currently on the books of the Scottish champions Celtic, has 12 months left on his contract and the Celtic boss, Brendan Rodgers, is hopeful his charge will sign a contract extension.

However, his displays at the 2018 World Cup have also alerted, according to our referenced source, clubs in Turkey and France to his possible availability.

If Boyata does decide that he’d like to move on to the next chapter of his career, a move to our part of West London could be appealing if the player wishes to test his skills in the Premier League.

Slavisa Jokanovic is perfectly aware that there are areas of the Fulham squad that need strengthening, ahead of the start of the season, Boyata, in our opinion, would be an ideal signing.

Here at Vital Fulham, we’ll keep a watchful eye out for any further developments on this piece of transfer speculation and report back as deemed appropriate.
