Championship side Fulham have made a new attempt for the signing of Flamengo striker Rodrigo Muniz, according to reports from Brazil.
UOL says the Whites have now put on the table a bid for a one-year loan spell plus an obligatory buying clause.
The outlet claims the signing is an ‘exclusive request’ from manager Marco Silva, who was ‘delighted’ with the recent performances from the player.
The Brazilian media had already reported that Fulham had made a first effort to sign Muniz. At that time, it was said the Craven Cottage side had offered €1m for the loan, plus a buying option of €9m. Now, however, the figures aren’t detailed.
Earlier this week, UOL had also reported that Middlesbrough held a meeting with Flamengo in Lisbon. So now they say there are two English sides battling for the signing, with his agent looking to define the player’s future.
Saudi side Al Nasr had also been interested in Muniz and even made an offer for his signing, but the report now says the negotiations didn’t advance, so it sounds likely that the striker will end up moving to the Championship.
