Fulham - Going Italian?
With the January transfer window now officially open, Roy Hodgson is, if he desires, free to do some wheeling and dealing.
One target has already sprung to prominence in the tabloid press with it being intimated that Roy is keen to land the AS Roma striker, Stefano Okaka.
Fulham supporters may recall that Okaka played in both fixtures, against AS Roma, in the Europa League this season. At twenty-years of age he looks set to be a star of the future and declaring his interest Roy has remarked,
"Okaka is a possibility for us. We're looking into it and have shown an interest.'
'How far we go down that road will depend on other things like whether he wants to come on loan to England. The finances of the situation will also be important."
"Okaka has got quality and the fact it's a loan is also advantageous because he's a young player and largely untried."
"We're happy with our striking options but we would like to have some cover and someone who can put pressure on the guys we have."
"Okaka seems to be that type of player but a lot of water must pass under the bridge before he pulls on a Fulham shirt."
Would that be a lot of water passing under Putney Bridge by any chance Roy?
