Back in May, those who control Fulham Football Club, did their best to celebrate the ushering in of a new era, our return to the Premier League, by providing the funds for several additions to be made to the club.
Unfortunately, the summer transfer business the club conducted, when it comes to new arrivals, hasn’t provided the impetus the club hoped for, with the club rooted to the foot of the Premier League table.
There are some who believe that the squad that took us to promotion should have been given the chance to flourish in the Premier League, but hindsight is, as they say, a wonderful thing.
But, with the January transfer window fast approaching, it remains to be seen if Fulham will bring in anyone else to boost our chances of retaining our Premier League status.
One news source, the Sun, believes that Fulham could indeed be bringing in somebody to assist with those aforementioned chances.
However, I’m not sure this possible arrival will be greeted with the enthusiasm normally associated with an acquisition when his name is revealed.
It appears that having been loaned to the Serie A side, AC Milan, the Chelsea midfielder, Tiemoue Bakayoko, is set for a return to London.
The AC Milan manager, the former Glasgow Rangers midfielder Gennaro Gattuso, don’t rate the player and has only given him two starts in Serie A.
Throw into the mixer the fact Bakayoko was out of the picture, down the road at Stamford Bridge under the managerial acumen of Antonio Conte, and you start to ponder as to why Fulham if the speculation is correct, would even consider adding the player to the squad.
Hopefully, although it sounds cruel, I hope this is a move that doesn’t happen.
