With the brand new season just over one week away, with the season opener at home to Newcastle United eagerly anticipated, speculation suggests that Slavisa Jokanovic is close to bringing a new striker to Craven Cottage.

According to a little paragraph in the excellent ‘Transfer Gossip` column in the popular UK tabloid the Sun, the Benin striker Steve Mounie could be set to sign on the dotted line.

Mounie has, according to the Sun, had a medical with Fulham and has discussed private terms.

Although Mounie is classified as a Montpellier player, it appears that his exploits whilst on loan with Nimes last season have gotten him noticed.

At twenty-one years old and standing six feet three inches in his socks, Mounie has the physique to trouble many a defence.

As for a transfer fee, a figure of £6 million is being quoted for his services.
