Fulham have targeted a number of signings for the upcoming season one of which has been completed, one pending a medical, and the third deep in negotiations.

Floyd Ayite

Floyd Ayite

Fulham have signed Floyd Ayite for a reported 1.7 million pounds from SC Bastia from Ligue 1 in France. He has mostly played on the left side of midfield, but recently has seen some action uptop. He has his highest WhoScored ratings when he has played on either the left or right wing. He scored 8 goals and had 3 assists in 30 appearances last season in Ligue 1 which is a good return for a winger. He should slot in well at the vacant left wing position left by Kacaniklic.

Sone Aluko

Fulham have been extensively linked to signing free agent Sone Aluko, who was released after last season by Hull City. Throughout the years he has played there he has mainly been an impact sub coming off the bench to try and tie or get a winner. He had a relatively disappointing year last year only scoring 3 goals in 25 appearances. His rating on WhoScored.com is nort 100% fair considering his rating when he has started are significantly higher than his substitute ratings. If his ratings from last year are anything to go off, an increase of chances to start, which he would get at Fulham, could definitely increase his goals count and his rating.

Denis Odoi

Denis Odoi is a left back currently contracted to KSC Lokeren in the Belgian Pro League. He has played the majority of his games as a left back but has the ability to play on the right. He has very good pace which would be nice to have across from Fredericks. He also seems to be an accomplished crosser of the ball. With him in our backline it seems probable Jokanovic will line up with 5 at the back, 2 wingbacks and 3 center backs.

With these signings the Fulham team is starting to take shape and it looks very promising. The players come with top division experience and bring something Fulham has desperately needed, pace. With these signings Fulham will be in a much better position than last year.
