Last summer, Fulham allowed André-Frank Zambo Anguissa to join Villarreal on a season-long loan deal and the latter retain an option to make the 24-year-old’s transfer permanent.
On March 19th, AS reported the La Liga side can buy the Cameroon international for €25m this summer.
It was also explained the midfielder’s continuity with the Spanish club beyond this campaign is ‘very difficult’, even if the Championship side reduce his asking price.
Monday’s edition of AS once again states the €25m fee complicates Villarreal’s chances of signing the player on a permanent deal.
However, the newspaper’s headline reads ‘Anguissa wants to stay’ and within the report, it’s explained sources close to the club do not rule out his continuity.
The Yellow Submarine know first-hand about the player’s ‘predisposition’ to extend his stay with them and the former now want to use it to their advantage.
According to the report, Villarreal are not only looking for a ‘price reduction’, but are also exploring other possibilities. One of them includes extending his loan stay for next season, with an option to make the transfer permanent in 2021.
AS doesn’t mention whether or not Fulham are ready to accept any of these conditions proposed by Villarreal for Anguissa’s transfer.
