Fulham - Scharner Still Linked!
With July 1st drawing ever nearer, albeit very slowly; any transfer activity remains purely speculative.
We all have targets in our own minds as to who we`d like Fulham to buy, some realistic, some totally unrealistic but a lot of it will depend on how much of a transfer budget Roy Hodgson will be given.
But, one name continues to be linked with our club that of Paul Scharner the Austrian defender / midfielder.
Popping over to Vital Wigan, you get the impression that Scharner is a serial transfer-seeker at this time of the year but this year they seem quite certain that he`ll be off, especially since the recent departure of Steve Bruce.
As for Scharner, he`s still, if his comments can be trusted, undecided as to where he`ll end up, remarking,
"Tottenham, Everton and Fulham are interested in me, like Hertha Berlin and Hamburg. But I would prefer to stay in England."
A couple of things bother me though!
With Wigan having recently filled their bank coffers to the tune of £16 million plus for Valencia, will they settle for anything less tan the reputed £6 million they want for Scharner.
Also, is he the sort of player that would fit into our side?
