Fulham eye swoop for West Ham and Leicester City-linked man as alternative to Everton midfielder

Latest news and rumours on the transfer front involving Fulham emerges

Fulham are reportedly keen on Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic. The Serbia international caught the eye at the World Cup in Qatar earlier this winter.

According to a report by The Athletic, Marco Silva’s side are ‘exploring’ a move to lure him to the Premier League. They have until the deadline next Tuesday to add reinforcements to their squad.

Lukic, 26, has been linked with West Ham, as per TuttoMercatoWeb, and Leicester City according to CalcioMercato. However, Fulham have now entered the chase for his signature.

The Cottagers could see him as someone to bolster their options in the middle of the park and provide competition to plays like Harrison Reed and Joao Palhinha. They have been after Everton’s Abdoulaye Doucoure but the Toffees are reluctant to let him leave.

Lukic has been with current club Torino since 2016 and has since made 161 appearances in all competitions for the Serie A outfit, chipping in with 14 goals, as well as having a loan spell away in La Liga with Levante back in the 2017/18 campaign. Prior to his move to Italy, he rose up through the ranks at Partizan and played there with Aleksandar Mitrovic as a youngster.

In other news, defender Denso Kasius, who Fulham were linked with, has joined Rapid Wien. The full-back has signed on loan from Bologna.
