Fulham open to selling Joao Palhinha for the right offer

Fulham midfielder Joao Palhinha has been linked with a move away from the West London club in recent months.

Joao Palhinha was expected to leave Fulham last summer and in January, but the West London club managed to hold on to him eventually. A report from talkSPORT has revealed comments from Tony Khan, who has suggested that Fulham are now prepared to sell him for the right price.

Clubs like Chelsea and Liverpool have been linked with the 28-year-old midfielder, and it remains to be seen whether they decide to come forward with an offer to sign the player following the recent developments.

The Portuguese international has established himself as a quality defensive midfielder in the Premier League, and he is certainly good enough to play for the biggest clubs. Chelsea recently signed Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia for a substantial amount of money. It will be interesting to see if they decide to sign another defensive midfielder in the coming months.

Meanwhile, Liverpool are crying out for a quality defensive midfielder after the departure of Fabinho. They tried to sign multiple players in the summer but ended up with Wataru Endo. While the Japanese international has done an impressive job so far, Liverpool need to aim for players with higher quality.

Palhinha would be a superb addition in the middle of the park, and it remains to be seen weather Liverpool  come forward with an official proposal for the player.

Palhinha will want to join a big club

Palhinha will want to compete at the highest level, and joining big clubs like Chelsea and Liverpool will help him compete for major trophies in the coming seasons. He is at the peak of his career right now and this would be the right time for him to take the next step. It will be interesting to see if the two clubs can agree on a reasonable price with Fulham at the end of the season.

The midfielder was linked with the move to clubs like Bayern Munich in recent months as well. It will be interesting to see if the German champions decide to resurrect their interest in the player despite ruling out a January move and test Fulham’s resolve with an offer at the end of the season.
