Further to a report in the Sun today, Dutch paper De Telegraaf confirmed that Heerenveen wingers
Luciano Narsingh and Oussama Assaidi were given a tour of Craven Cottage on Monday. Both wingers will soon be into the last year of their contracts and signed with Martin Jol's agent Mino Raiola earlier this year.
Heerenveen had given permission to allow the players to fly to London and technical Director Johan Hansma said "We have the players Mino Raiola and given space to talk,'' "Narsingh Assaidi and Assaidi should have a good feeling at a club. It makes no sense if we reach an agreement with a club and the players do not want to go. For the transfer to suceed, you have to have 3 interested parties".
It's interesting that we're looking to make moves early and the fact that Heerenveen allowed the players to travel, must mean an agreement in principal is in place. Having Martin Jol's agent involved alludes to the fact we have a strong chance to land these players.
So, who are they?
Luciano Narsingh is a Dutch 21 year old right sided forward or winger who in 34 appearances this season has scored 8 goals and provided 22 assists.
Oussama Assaidi is a 23 year old, left sided attacking midfielder who in 27 appearances has scored 10 goals and provided 7 assists.
These could be exciting additions for Fulham but if they joined it would accelerate the rumours of the departures of Dempsey and/or Dembele.
