Fulham hope to secure £8m deal for Roma winger Justin Kluivert

Fulham are hoping to make Roma winger Justin Kluivert their latest summer signing, according to talkSPORT.

Roma value Kluivert – son of Dutch legend Patrick – at £8million, a sum that would not deter the Cottagers in their quest to add firepower to their squad.

Kluivert signed for Roma in 2018 after club legend Francesco Totti phoned Kluivert Sr to convince his son to join the club.

However, the Dutchman failed to find his feet in the Eternal City and as a result spent the last two seasons on loan with Bundesliga side RB Leipzig and Nice in Ligue 1, registering six goals and assists decisive in 32 appearances last season. for the last.

Kluivert has two caps for the Netherlands to his name after being called up to the national team in 2018.

But a lack of international recognition of late has coincided with Kluivert’s struggles to regain his best form and a move to west London could see him relaunch his career.

Unlike his father, Kluivert is not a natural goalscorer, preferring to use his pace, trickery and vision to provide an assist.

Kluivert does not appear to be part of Jose Mourinho’s plans ahead of this weekend’s big Serie A kick-off and Roma are unlikely to stand in the way if their assessment is met.

Marco Silva has already made six signings this summer and could rush for Kluivert before the end of the window

Fulham have been active during this summer’s transfer window with the signings of Joao Palhinha, Andreas Pereira, Kevin Mbabu and Bernd Leno joining Shane Duffy and Manor Soloman.

Boss Marco Silva appears to have a better balanced squad compared to the club’s last top-flight campaign in 2020/21 and kicked off the new season with a creditable 2-2 draw at home to Liverpool.
