Fulham interested in Michael Obafemi

Fulham are interested in a deal to bring Michael Obafemi to Craven Cottage this summer.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a claim made by Alex Crook, with the talkSPORT journalist revealing in a post on Twitter that both Fulham and Bournemouth are keeping a very close eye on the situation of the Southampton centre-forward – who is currently in talks with Blackburn Rovers – ahead of a potential swoop over what remains of the summer transfer window.

In his tweet, Crook said: “No agreement between Michael Obafemi and Rovers at this stage despite a willingness from Saints to get the deal done. Lots of other Championship interest including AFCB and Fulham.”

Fans will be buzzing

With chairman Tony Khan having already secured the additions of Harry Wilson and Paulo Gazzaniga this summer, as well as appearing close to signing the Flamengo centre-forward Rodrigo Muniz, should the Cottagers director of football go on to also get a deal over the line for Obafemi in what remains of the transfer window, Fulham fans will undoubtedly be buzzing.

While the £12k-per-week 21-year-old has found it difficult to stake a regular place in the Southampton first team, he is nevertheless a player who appears to boast a significant amount of potential.

Indeed, despite averaging just 32 minutes on the pitch over his 21 Premier League appearances back in 2019/20 – only eight of which came as starts – the £2.7m-rated man still managed to score three goals, register two assists and create two big chances for his teammates, as well as taking an average of 0.6 shots and making 0.5 key passes per game.

Would Obafemi be a good signing for Fulham?





As such, when taking into account his tender age, as well as the fact that he would undoubtedly find the Championship to be an easier league to develop both his goalscoring and creative talents than the top flight, should Fulham go on to secure the signing of Obafemi this summer, the man Ralph Hasenhuttl dubbed a “quality” player very much appears to have the potential to flourish into a fantastic player in west London.
