Frenchman desperate for Fulham switch

Wolves winger Bakary SakoBakary Sako wants Wolves to lower his £4million price tag in a bid to push through a summer move to Fulham, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The Molineux-based side made it back-to-back relegations last season, slipping to the third tier of English football, but despite their woeful showings, Sako was impressive in an under-performing team.

This has alerted Fulham boss Martin Jol, who is keen to add further creativity to his attacking armoury.

The Frenchman only joined Wolves last year from Saint Etienne in a £2.2m deal, but is desperate to avoid a season in League One.

Although the Midlanders are aware that they will need to sell big name players in order to cope with reduced income next season, they are said to be unwilling to lower their £4m valuation of the 25-year-old.

Sako has made his desire to leave the club very clear, and believes that promises made when he signed are currently being broken.

“When I joined Wolves, the club said to me the aim was to reach the Premier League together,” he said.

“I am sad that has not happened, but I gave everything and have always been respectful to the club.

“At that first meeting, I sat with (former Wolves manager) Stale Solbakken and Jez Moxey (chief executive) and they told me if we didn’t get promoted, the club would let me go.

“I was told I could speak to Fulham and now I don’t understand the delay.

“I would like things to be sorted out. I am only being ambitious. I believe the fans will understand that.”

Is Bakary Sako right to demand a move? And can he cope with Premier League football?
