Fulham interested in Siriki Dembele

Fulham are interested in a deal to bring Siriki Dembele to Craven Cottage this summer.

What’s the talk?

That’s according to a report by The Sun, who claimed that the Cottagers, as well as fellow Championship clubs Bournemouth and Stoke City, are considering a move for the Peterborough United centre-forward in the summer transfer window, with Posh believed to be demanding a fee of around £4m to part with the striker.

However, the report added that the three interested clubs are only willing to pay around £2.5m for the 24-year-old, something which could well prove a big stumbling block in a potential move for the forward.

Should Fulham try to sign Dembele this summer?





Imagine him and Muniz

With Tony Khan seemingly close to landing the highly-rated Rodrigo Muniz this summer, having already sealed the signing of Harry Wilson, Fulham’s attacking lineup next season would certainly appear to be a mouthwatering one should the director of football operations subsequently secure a further deal for Dembele

Indeed, while Jonson Clarke-Harris’ 31 League One goals stole the headlines for Peterborough last season, Dembele was arguably even more influential in the club’s promotion-winning campaign.

Over his 42 league appearances, the £1.08m-rated man scored 11 goals, registered 10 assists and created a whopping 17 big chances for his teammates, taking 1.8 shots and making 1.5 key passes per game.

The Big 20/21 Championship Quiz! Question 1. Who was the top goalscorer in the Championship last season?

These metrics saw the player who Barry Fry called a “dazzling” talent earn a seasonal Sofascore match rating of 7.06, ranking him as the club’s joint seventh-best performer in the league in 2020/21.

As such, with the 24-year-old possessing a clear eye for goal, in addition to being incredibly creative, a front three consisting of Dembele, Wilson and Muniz or Aleksandar Mitrovic would undoubtedly strike fear into a great many Championship defences next term. We believe that Khan should do all he can to get a deal over the line for the Posh forward this summer.
