Expect a flood of transfer rumours – and hopefully some activity before 11pm on Friday as the club enters the market following the sale of Luka Modric.
One of the reported targets is Fulham’s Moussa Dembele – a player who Martin Jol compared to Rafael van der Vaart last season but could our former manager be tempted with a couple of Tottenham outcasts as potential bait?
It’s been suggested that either David Bentley or Jermaine Jenas – or possibly both – could be offered to the Cottagers as part of any transfer. The club have been linked with the players in the past although it’s likely to have been no more than paper talk so far.
It’s claimed that the 25 year old Belgian could cost up to £15m but that the inclusion of Jenas and / or Bentley could bring that amount down considerably.
It could make sense but the only issue is that Fulham seem to have moved on from the days where they might have taken Tottenham’s deadwood. The press are now putting clubs such as QPR in that particular frame and would Martin Jol really be that interested in such a proposition?
