Signing centre-back looks a certainty for Fulham in summer transfer window – South London News

Fulham will have at least one centre-back on their summer shopping list.

The Whites will lose Tosin Adarabioyo on a free transfer this summer after he rejected new terms.

The former Manchester City youngster is set to sign for Newcastle United and has not been selected for the west London club’s last three Premier League games.

Fulham look weaker without Adarabioyo partnering Calvin Bassey in the middle of defence.

Issa Diop, Adarabioyo’s replacement in Marco Silva’s side, played well in the 0-0 draw at Brentford but found Saturday
4-0 defeat to Manchester City a mixed bag.

The former West Ham United man made some key blocks but was also too static for Josko Gvardiol’s opener at Craven Cottage and was then sent off very late on for two bookable offenses after his challenge lefty on Julian Alvarez, who converted the next. penalty.

Diop will miss Sunday’s final at Luton Town, with American veteran Tim Ream, 36, set to start.

Fulham’s fire rate in the run-in killed any hope of a challenge for a top 10 finish.

Their only win in their last nine games was 2-0 at a West Ham United side who had played Bayer Leverkusen a few days earlier and were coming off the return.

Now it’s back-to-back goals and Rodrigo Muniz, who won Premier League Player of the Month for March, has scored just once in his seven games, a 1-1 draw at home to Crystal Palace.

Eight of his 10 goals have come in a two-month run since February, and the front line is another area that will need strengthening in the next window.
