The transfer window has not yet officially opened but teams are already wra up deals. Fulham have undoubtedly been looking at targets, and now we will take a look at some of them.

Thomas Foket

Club: KAA Gent

transfermarkt.co.uk value: £2.98 million

Appearances: 28 in the league, 9 in Europa League

Goals: 0

Assists: 1 in Europa Legue, 1 in Domestic League

WhoScored.com Rating: 6.56 for Europa League performances, N/A for the league

Thomas Foket has appeared on Fulham’s radar after another quality season in the Belgian league. With Dennis Odoi heading to Gent, it seems like Fulham are looking at something of a swap deal, and have identified Foket as their player of choice. Foket can play anywhere on the right side from right back to right wing, and would provide cover for Fredericks and Aluko. Overall, we probably would have to toss in some extra cash in order for the deal to happen, but I think it would be well worth it.

(Also if he scores goals like this he will be an instant fan favorite)

Jordan Hugill

Club: Preston North End

Transfermarkt.co.uk value: £298 thousand

Appearances: 44

Goals: 12

Assists: 2

WhoScored.com Rating: 6.75

Jordan Hugill has apparently emerged as one of Fulham’s striker targets this summer. He is a big, strong striker who likes to get on the ends of crosses, and would be a welcomed addition to the Fulham team. He probably would cost around 2-3 million pounds, in comparison to Martin that would be a bargain. At the end of the day, Preston finished in a decent position, so Hugill might not be overeager to make a move. That being said, if we came knocking I think he would be interested at the least.

Francesco Vicari

Club: SPAL

Appearances: 34

Goals: 1

Assists: 1

WhoScored Rating: N/A

Transfermarkt.co.uk Value: 428k

Vicari’s name first popped up in the Italian media, and it came as a surprise to many that Fulham were pursuing a player who has just been promoted to Serie A. However, as was seen in the last window with players like Ayite, Kebano, and Sigurdsson arriving from clubs in the top tier of those countries, Fulham are able to draw good players. Vicari is a big dog, a no-nonsense, physical defender, who would complement the likes of Madl, Sigurdsson, and Ream very well. It would be a match made in heaven if Fulham were able to bring back Kalas, stick him and ream on either side of Vicari, and play a 3-5-2, Fredericks and Ayite on the wings. Vicari could also slot in at one of the two center back positions, but that would either signal that Kalas is not returning, or Sigurdsson or Madl on their was out. Either way, I would be absolutely ecstatic to see Vicari sign, and he would certainly help us in our push for promotion.
