Transfer gossip: Whites want Arfield, Sun say

Some of the recent transfer speculation involving Fulham.

Fulham want Burnley midfielder Scott Arfield, The Sun say.

The Sun reports that West Brom have targeted the Canada international and that he is also wanted by the Whites and Hull.

Arfield has a year remaining on his contract at Burnley, whose manager Sean Dyche would apparently be reluctant to let him leave.

Brighton linked with McDonald

Brighton want Fulham midfielder Kevin McDonald, The Sun have also claimed.

The Sun say a move to the promoted Seagulls would appeal to the 28-year-old, who has three years remaining on his contract at Craven Cottage.

It is claimed that Brighton are ready to table a £2m bid for him and that he is also wanted by Glasgow Rangers.

McDonald would also see a transfer to Ibrox as a good move, The Sun say, because he wants to get back into the Scotland squad.

Sessegnon speculation

Manchester United are keen to snap up Ryan Sessegnon and Liverpool are still in the race to sign him, according to the Daily Telegraph.

It comes after the Daily Mirror reported that United and battling with Tottenham for the Fulham youngster and that Liverpool had ended their interest.

The Telegraph say United boss Jose Mourinho wants to take Sessegnon to Old Trafford, that there is no sign of any interested clubs withdrawing their interest, and that the player is open-minded about the possibility of staying at Fulham.

The Liverpool Echo reported earlier this that Liverpool have ended their interest in Sessegnon and believe he will join Tottenham.

Spurs have long been interested in the 17-year-old, who has yet to sign a professional contract at Craven Cottage.

Arsenal have shown an interest as well, while the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Everton have also been linked with Sessegnon.

The Echo believe Liverpool doubted Sessegnon’s commitment to joining them amid reports Spurs are close to agreeing a deal to sign him.

Whites want Fletcher, Mirror say

Fulham are among clubs interested in West Ham youngster Ashley Fletcher, again according to the Mirror.

The Mirror say Huddersfield are keen to sign Fletcher, 21, on a season-long loan following the Yorkshire club’s promotion to the top flight.

The newspaper say Fulham, Middlesbrough and Norwich are also looking to bring in the forward for next season.

Cairney’s future

Newcastle continue to be linked with Fulham playmaker Tom Cairney.

The Daily Telegraph say the promoted Magpies are set to make an approach following the Whites’ play-off defeat against Reading.

They were linked with Cairney during the January transfer window and are apparently undeterred by reports Fulham want £20m for the 26-year-old.

The Telegraph suggest Newcastle are likely to offer £12m and that Cairney may well be keen to make the move now Fulham’s hopes of a return to the Premier League have been ended.

The Northern Echo believe Newcastle will make an approach for Cairney and that there is also interest from West Ham and Southampton.
