Fulham are expected to step in for £10million-rated Roma winger Justin Kluivert… after Marco Silva’s side already added Willian and Layvin Kurzawa in a manic end of the transfer window this week
- Fulham are in talks with Roma over the signing of Dutch winger Justin Kluivert
- Kluivert is expected to join an initial loan deal with a £10million purchase option
- The Dutchman has been on loan for the last two seasons after falling out of favor
- Fulham boss Marco Silva is desperate to improve his attacking options
Fulham are expected to join Roma winger Justin Kluivert on loan with a £10million purchase option.
Marco Silva’s side are expected to have a busy end of the transfer window, with the Cottagers finalizing deals with Layvin Kurzawa and former Chelsea star Willian this week.
And it now looks like they will sign Kluivert as Silva wants to improve his attacking options to stave off fears of relegation.
Fulham are negotiating a deal with Roma for disgraced Dutch winger Justin Kluivert
Both Willian and Layvin Kurzawa struck deals with Fulham this week and are expected to be formally unveiled ahead of Thursday’s transfer window
The 23-year-old Dutchman, son of legendary Dutch striker Patrick Kluivert, has fallen out of favor at Roma and Fulham have been chasing the winger all summer.
sports mail reported earlier this month that the promoted team had spoken to Roma about the prospect of signing the two-time Netherlands international.
Kluivert broke through at Ajax as a teenager before joining Roma for £14.8million in 2018.
He initially impressed but gradually slipped down the pecking order, spending the last two seasons on loan at RB Leipzig and Nice.
Fulham have already dived into the transfer market to sign Joao Palhinha, Issa Diop, Andreas Pereira, Kevin Mbabu, Bernd Leno, Manor Solomon and Shane Duffy this summer.

Kluivert was frozen by Roma coach Jose Mourinho, who banned him from Roma’s training camp and forced the winger to attend training sessions alone while negotiations over his future took place.
Fulham look short and wide in attack as Fabio Carvalho was sold to Liverpool this summer, Anthony Knockaert and Ivan Cavaleiro have fallen out of favor and new loanee Manor Solomon is unlikely to play until the new year after suffering a knee injury.
Kluivert has made 68 appearances in all competitions for Roma, scoring nine goals and providing ten assists.
