Jol wants focus amid Serie A speculation

Fulham's Pajtim Kasami

Fulham midfielder Pajtim Kasami has been urged to ignore any transfer speculation, reports Sky Sports.

The Switzerland international, who scored one of the goal’s of the season against Crystal Palace on Monday night, has been linked with Serie A giants Juventus.

But manager Martin Jol is desperate for Kasami to focus on playing for the Cottagers, as they look to recover from a sluggish start to the season:

“He’s still not the best player in England, but I think in two or three years he could be a big player. Then maybe Juventus can come here and pay a lot of money for him. That would be good for everyone.

“I told him to count his blessings and to be happy at that age playing Premier League football. He needs to keep his feet on the ground. He’s a very level-headed boy.”

Jol added on Kasami, who took a 50 per cent pay cut last season to link up with Lucerne on loan: “There will be a situation in five or six months’ time that we have to talk and extend his contract.

“If he didn’t score that goal it would’ve been a different story.”

It was a much needed win for Martin Jol, who’s future at Craven Cottage has been in recent doubt. But the victory has led to doubt over whether Kasami would stay in London, as the Swiss star enters the last 18 months of his contract.

Is Kasami ready for a big move? How good can he be for Fulham?
