This summer's European Championships has seen Hal Robson-Kanu turn from Championship flop to Welsh hero. So how can he be the perfect fit for Fulham?

Robson-Kanu provides a factor of versatility, which is a valuable asset to a squad over a long season in the Championship. The 27 year old is able to play in any of the forward positions. He has started 18 times out wide, playing 9 times on each side respectively for his club. Reading also played him as a striker 6 times throughout the league season.

Fulham are in need of another striker and although the club has seen the signing of Floyd Ayite to play on the left wing, the club still lacks depth in the wide areas. Hal Robson-Kanu was by no means prolific last Championship season, netting only 3 times and making 6 assists. However Robson-Kanu created one of the most memorable moments of this summer's Euros scoring Wales’ second after a superbly executed Cruyff turn past two Belgian players during their 3-1 win of Belgium in the Quarter Final. Showing that he possesses the skill and ability to succeed after a staggered domestic season.

So why did the Welshman perform for the national side when he struggled with Reading? Some joked in saying he was merely ‘playing for a contract’, but what if there's more to it than that? Maybe it's a style of play that the Welshman prefers or maybe a position change?

Reports suggest that he is on the verge of signing for Hull City after they achieved promotion last season. Whilst he has shown glimpses of brilliance over the summer is he ready to make the jump to the Premier League?

The Wales international was born and raised in London, could a possible move back to the capital tempt him over advances from Premier League teams?
