Late last week, we covered a report from Italy claiming that Fulham had made an offer for Kevin Mbabu.
The news came from TuttoMercatoWeb, who claimed the Cottagers were showing strong interest in the Switzerland international, who made 31 appearances in all competitions last season.
Well, this had made its way to Germany, where Kicker go out of their way to clarify a few points when it comes to Fulham and Mbabu.
The magazine, on their website, do concur that Marco Silva’s side are interested, ‘but there is no official offer yet’.
They even go out of their way to point out that if €10m had been put forward, ‘the transfer of the Swiss would probably go straight through’.
That’s because his deal at Wolfsburg ends in a year, and he suffered a troubled campaign off the pitch, which affected his standing in the team.
That being said, the reported €10m offer ‘has not been received’, regardless of the fact the interest from Fulham ‘has been deposited’.
In fact, ‘talks about a transfer are being held’, where ‘thoughts on numbers are being exchanged’, meaning Wolfsburg’s hope of making ‘up to €8m’ could happen.
Down their end, the Bundesliga side have already brought in a replacement in Kilian Fischer, so a sale is certainly on the cards if Fulham do end up opening their wallet.
