Exclusive: EFL spy thinks John Swift would be quality signing for Marco Silva’s Fulham

New Fulham manager Marco Silva has already made a bright start to the transfer window, and Football FanCast‘s EFL spy reckons John Swift would be another shrewd addition for the Cottagers.

The Whites boss recently made two impressive coups in Liverpool attacker Harry Wilson and goalkeeper Paulo Gazzaniga following his release from Tottenham.

And despite suffering their third relegation in the space of eight seasons, Fulham are yet to lose any of their best players as they go in search of a third promotion in six years.

Swift has established himself as a goalscoring midfielder in recent seasons, netting 28 times in his Championship career.

In 2019-2020, Swift served up six goals and 10 assists for Reading but was unable to replicate that form last season after missing no fewer than 39 matches with an ongoing hamstring problem.

“John Swift at Reading is a high end Championship player. He’s technically very good and has proven his worth year after year.”
