Fulham were linked with a move for Peterborough United winger Siriki Dembele ahead of January and with the 24-year-old dazzling once again at the weekend, Tony Khan must consider bringing him to Craven Cottage during the current transfer window – he would surely be an upgrade on Aboubakar Kamara.
The former Grimsby Town man was linked with Fulham, as well as the likes of Celtic and Rangers, and handed in a transfer request at the League One club recently so is clearly keen on a move away from the Posh this month.
Dembele has consistently produced quality performances in the third tier so far this season, having averaged a superb 7.39 rating, with five goals and six assists to his name in 19 league appearances.
As per SofaScore, the winger was rated as the second-best player on the pitch during the 3-0 win against MK Dons, with only two-goal attacker Sammie Szmodics rated higher.
During his time on the pitch, Dembele would contribute two assists, and was successful in both of his dribble attempts and all of his crosses and long balls, demonstrating the quality he has on the ball.
He would create two big chances during the game, which Szmodics would put away, emphasising just how much impact he had in the game against Russell Martin’s side.
Impressively, the 24-year-old would also win five duels and make three tackles, which was the same amount of tackles as both of Peterborough’s wing-backs, which suggests that he could offer Parker’s side help from a defensive perspective, as well as an attacking one.
Kamara meanwhile, has averaged a terrible 5.93 rating in his Premier League appearances so far this season, and although he is playing at a higher level, he averages 0.4 shots, 0.4 key passes and 0.4 dribbles, which is comfortably inferior to the 2 shots, 1.7 key passes and 3.1 dribbles averaged by Dembele.
Therefore, when considering his form this season and his performance against MK Dons, it seems clear that Dembele would be a better option than Kamara in Parker’s side, and Tony Khan must therefore consider a move for the Peterborough winger before the transfer window is over.
