Fulham looking for Anthony Knockaert exit, West Brom were interested
West Brom were in strong pursuit of Fulham winger Anthony Knockaert this summer, according to Football League World.
The outlet has shared a major update on the ongoing situation on Saturday, and doors could still be open.
It is reported that Fulham are keen to force an exit, with the Frenchman also happy to leave Craven Cottage as soon as possible.
West Brom were one of many clubs interested in the summer.
Celtic and Queens Park Rangers were also in the hunt, but there was a stumbling block for all three clubs.
Knockaert is on big wages in London, and it looks as though they are a major problem behind any club making a move.
With both club and player looking for an exit route though, there could be a solution found between all parties.
Ever since Valerien Ismael arrived, the board haven’t exactly been showering with funds to throw at his squad.
Fulham have been the opposite with big-money moves for the likes of Harry Wilson, and they clearly need to sell some names in order to balance the books.
Would Knockaert add something? We think not.
Looking at his Championship record from recent seasons don’t make for good reading, as he only scored twice in 33 appearances on loan at Nottingham Forest last season.
With Grady Diangana coming into form with the likes of Matt Phillips, Callum Robinson and Karlan Grant alongside him – options are looking good.
It will be interesting to see if things can change as time progresses, with a potential loan move on the table in January if needed.
