Fulham midfielder Andre Zambo Anguissa is attracting interest ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
That’s according to a report by CalcioMercato, who claim that the 25-year-old is a target of Serie A side Napoli in the summer transfer market.
The Cameroon international still has two years remaining on his current contract at Craven Cottage, meaning the west London side are in a strong negotiating position should an offer from Gli Azzurri materialise.
Having joined Fulham from Olympique Marseille in what was a £30m move back in the summer of 2018, with Scott Parker himself claiming that he has “had a difficult time” at Fulham, we feel it would be fair to say that Anguissa has not quite lived up to his price tag for the Cottagers just yet.
In his debut season for the club, the defensive midfielder failed to score a single goal or provide an assist, however, he did make an average of 1.5 interceptions, 2.2 tackles and won 5.9 duels per game over his 22 Premier League appearances.
After Fulham’s relegation to the Championship, the 25-year-old spent the 2019/20 season on loan at LaLiga side Villarreal, before returning to west London after the club’s immediate promotion back to the Premier League.
Anguissa’s performances improved this time around, as he registered three assists and created four big chances for his teammates, as well as making an average of 1.6 interceptions, 2.2 tackles and winning 7.3 duels per game over his 36 top-flight fixtures.
However, following Fulham’s second relegation in three years, now would very much appear the perfect time for Tony Khan to be ruthless and cash in on the £67k-per-week man, as not only could the money saved on his extremely costly weekly wage be used to invest in other areas of the Fulham squad this summer, so too could whatever transfer fee the Cottagers receive.
As such, with Napoli believed to be interested in the 25-year-old this summer, it would appear highly advisable for the club’s sporting director to sanction Anguissa’s departure while the interest is there.
