Report: Everton's Mo Besic wants to join Fulham in £5m move

A general view of Craven Cottage before the Premier League match between Fulham FC and Everton FC at Craven Cottage on April 13, 2019 in London, England.

Everton's Mo Besic is reportedly heading back to the Championship with Fulham despite Bundesliga and Serie A interest.

Everton midfielder Mo Besic could be on his way to Fulham, with TEAMtalk claiming that the Cottagers are leading the chase to sign the £5 million-rated Bosnian international.

It has been a busy day on the speculation front in West London. The Sun claims that Fulham are considering a £15 million move for Brighton and Hove Albion winger Anthony Knockaert who, just two years ago, was posing with the Championship Player of the Year award after a 15-goal season inspired the Seagulls to promotion.

 

Should he arrive, coupled with Besic’s addition in midfield, Scott Parker’s recently-relegated side would appear to have a far better chance of returning to the Premier League at the first time of asking.

After all, Besic will certainly provide the kind of bite a Fulham side who conceded 81 league goals last season so desperately need in central midfield.

Fulham are ready to pay his £5 million price-tag and the 26-year-old is willing to turn down clubs in France, Italy and Germany to seal a move to Craven Cottage.

This looks like quite the coup then, particularly as Besic has plenty of Championship experience in his locker now after spending the last 18 months hassling and harrying opposition forwards in the red of Middlesbrough.
