Fulham look to sign Wolfsburg fullback Kevin Mbabu for around £8million as they see the former Newcastle man as a cheaper alternative to Liverpool’s Neco Williams

  • Neco Williams impressed on loan spell at Fulham as they won the Championship
  • The club are unwilling to sign him permanently for Liverpool’s £15m asking price
  • Fulham are looking instead at Wolfsburg and Swiss right-back Kevin Mbabu
  • The 27-year-old full-back played in the Premier League with Newcastle in 2015/16

Fulham have been in talks of a £8million transfer for Wolfsburg right-back Kevin Mbabu as they consider cheaper options for Liverpool’s Neco Williams.

Fulham have worked out a list of options with former Newcastle defender Mbabu, Williams and ex-Everton fullback Djibril Sidibe all being considered.

Liverpool want £15 million for Williams, while Nottingham Forest and Southampton are also fond of the Wales international, while Sidibe is available as a free agent.

Mbabu has a one-year contract left and Wolfsburg is open to offers as the 27-year-old suffered a poor end to the Bundesliga season.

Fulham want a maximum of eight players this summer, but have been hampered by lengthy negotiations so far.

They had hoped to finalize Sporting Lisbon’s £17m signing Joaoo Palhinha, but talks were delayed due to an alleged dispute between agents.

They have also put in a £8.6million bid for Manchester United’s Andreas Pereira. The deal could go up to £11million in bonuses and United are keen to accept if the Brazilian midfielder agrees to move to Craven Cottage.

Fulham were promoted to the Premier League for the third time in five years after winning the championship last season.

They hope this time for a longer stay at the highest level and for Alexander Mitrovic to equal last season’s goalscoring record.
