Bent - A Realistic Target?
Having already declared that he is more than happy with a striking trio of Rodallega, Berbatov and Petric, could Martin Jol be about to add a fourth star name?
The reason we ask is that one Sunday paper has linked us with a cut-price move for the out of favour Aston Villa striker Darren Bent
The red-top suggests that Jol is keen for Fulham to underline their ambition by making a statement of intent and purchasing Bent for a fee, said to be in the region of £8 million.
Jol is along time admirer of Bent having previously remarked,
"If your club wants to be top 10, you need strikers such as Darren Bent, who`ll score 15 to 20 goals a season."
Will Fulham splash some of the cash they received for the sales of Dempsey and Dembele to lure Bent to London?
It remains to be seen.
