The transfer window may be shut but already speculation is mounting that Fulham are lining up a bid for a player currently playing in Spain.

In fact, the News of the World seems quite insistent that we`re in the market for the Spanish striker, Alvaro Negredo and that a £7 million bid will be tabled.

Their certainty appears to be based around a quote from the Spaniard who remarking about Fulham`s interest commented,

“They and other English clubs are watching my games but that doesn`t make me nervous. To play in the Premier League is not easy but today, there are many Spaniards over there and this is opening the door for others.”

“If a big offer comes I don`t believe that it would be a problem to close the deal. That is something the president told me.”


Personally, I`ll sit and wait and see what develops on this one, not sure that anything probably will though.

  • He is a good goalscorer, but so was johnson. I think we would have to improve in other areas first before thinking of strikers.

  • Two different situations – Johnson vs Negredo. Johnson was past his prime when we got him, and I thought at the time that we overpaid for him. Thus far, he’s not proven me wrong. Negredo is young. He has his entire career in front of him. That being said, I wouldn’t pay 7 mil for him. So many international strikers fail in the EPL, and that’s too much money to risk.
