Fulham man now wanted by Rangers following West Brom and QPR summer interest

Latest news on the transfer front involving Fulham.

Fulham’s Josh Onomah is reportedly on the radar of Rangers. The attacking midfielder is wanted up in Scotland ahead of January.

According to a report by Football Insider, the Gers are ‘plotting’ a swoop for him this winter as they look to bolster their ranks ahead of the second-half of the season. Their new boss Michael Beale wanted to sign him for former club QPR over the summer.

Fellow Championship side West Brom were also keen on landing him in the last transfer window but saw a deal fall through for both him and Steven Alzate from Brighton and Hove Albion on deadline day, as reported by The Athletic. The player ended up staying put at Craven Cottage but has slipped down the pecking order.

Onomah, 25, is out of contract at Fulham at the end of this season and is due to become a free agent next June. They risk losing him for free unless they can cash in on him next month.

He started out at Tottenham Hotspur and rose up through the academy of the North London outfit before going on to make 31 first-team appearances. The ex-England youth international also had loan spells away at Aston Villa and Sheffield Wednesday to gain experience before leaving on a permanent basis in 2019.

Onomah has played for the Cottagers for the past two-and-a-half years but his game time has dried up now. Beale is apparently a fan and could try and lure him to Rangers now.
