While he isn’t the star of the show at Torino these days in their defence, with Gleison Bremer picking up all the headlines, Koffi Djidji is quietly going on about his business.
The 29-year-old returned from a loan to Crotone last summer to become a regular with the Serie A side this season, to the point where he has caught the eye of Fulham.
That’s according to RMC Sport, who published an interview with the former Nantes man, where they mention the interest from the Cottagers.
Explaining that his performances with Torino this season and his ‘new status’ as a regular have ‘obviously brought up interest in Europe’.
With just one year left on his contract, this summer will be the ideal time for him to try something new and for his club to make money from a transfer, with Sporting CP, Olympiakos and Fulham mentioned as clubs to have ‘already shown interest’ in him.
Following their promotion back to the Premier League, the Cottagers will want to bolster their club to ensure they don’t go straight back down to the Championship.
Conceding as few goals as possible will be their main aim, and therefore Fulham taking an interest in one of the defenders who was ‘winning the most duels in Serie A’ before his injury in March makes a lot of sense.
