JOL WANTS STRENGTH
The Fulham manager Martin Jol has said that he is very much looking forward to increasing the strength of the squad in the coming weeks of the transfer window.
The transfer window for the summer will be closing in only a few weeks. After having lost many crucial players in the last few months, Martin Jol is ready to enter into the transfer window in a big way. The former Tottenham manager has spent very little money on transfers in the summer, but he has said that the squad is very much in need of bolstering if they are to finish in the top half of the table, especially with Arsenal and Man United amongst the ealry Fulham fixtures.
Players like Hugo Rodallega and Sascha Riether arrived at the club on Bosman and loan deals, which means that the manager still has a lot of money left from the players sold in the last few transfer windows. After having lost some of the influential players for Fulham in the last few years like Bobby Zamora and Danny Murphy in the last few months, the Fulham manager is keen to add some attacking talent to the team. Further, star striker Clint Dempsey has also been linked with a £ 12 million move to Liverpool.
"If everything stays as it is I am pretty satisfied, and we are still working to get two or three players in. It depends on what happens. You've heard all the rumours about the big players, our good players, so hopefully they will stay. We want them to stay, that is important. You saw Danny Murphy go. I wanted him to stay but he went to Blackburn, they offered him a two-year deal. We need at least a midfield player, in the midfield area," said the Fulham manager. Fulham will be taking on Norwich city on the opening day of the season.
