Fulham have been dealt a further blow in their bid to keep Antonee Robinson at Craven Cottage this summer.
That’s according to a report by Football Insider, who claim that Wolverhampton Wanderers are plotting a move for the 23-year-old defender in the summer transfer window, with the Cottagers thought to be demanding a fee in the region of £10m in order to part with the left-back.
News of Wolves’ interest comes following an earlier report by the Daily Mail that Manchester City, as well as a number of other Premier League sides, are considering a move for the USA international ahead of next season.
Having only joined Fulham from Wigan Athletic in what was a £1.9m deal last summer, the fact that Robinson looks set to leave west London after just one highly impressive season is sure to have left Marco Silva gutted.
Indeed, over his 28 league appearances for Fulham last term, the £6.3m-rated man helped his side keep four clean sheets, in addition to making an average of 1.3 interceptions, 1.6 tackles, 1.9 clearances and winning five duels per game.
These returns saw the left-back Scott Parker dubbed a “quality” talent earn an average SofaScore match rating of 6.89, ranking him as the Cottagers’ 12th-best player in the top flight of English football.
As such, considering the amount of potential Robinson appears to possess, if Silva were to lose his services this summer, it would not only damage the club’s chances of going on to secure an immediate return to the Premier League next season, but also see them lose a player who could well have been their first-choice left-back for many years to come.
However, with both Manchester City and Wolves being able to afford the American’s £10m asking price, it would very much seem as if Robinson could be on his way out of west London in the not so distant future.
