According to ESPN journalist James Olley, Fulham could make a late move to hijack Spurs’ deal for Leeds United winger Daniel James.
The Welshman has struggled to make an impact under Jesse Marsch and is now being linked with a move away from Yorkshire.
Tottenham Hotspur made a loan-to-buy offer for the 24-year-old earlier this week, but it appears that a potential hijacking of Antonio Conte’s deal is underway, and it comes in the form of the Cottagers.
“Update on Dan James in ESPN’s Transfer Talk. Leeds want £20m to sell. Spurs so far only shown willingness to take him on loan, with possible option. Fulham ready to pay asking price but player would need convincing. All possibilities (inc staying) open.”
After being in and out of Marsch’s starting lineup in the early weeks of the season, James should be looking for a fresh start, and with Fulham willing to splash the cash, this could be a move that suits both parties.
