Silva expects ‘several’ Fulham signings

Marco Silva expects Fulham to look to sign “several” players following Aleksandar Mitrovic’s departure.

Mitrovic’s move to Saudi Pro League side Al-Hilal was confirmed on Saturday.

The transfer fee is close to £50m and Fulham will now attempt to bolster the squad.

Raul Jimenez was recently brought in from Wolves but the Whites will look to acquire another striker before the transfer window closes.

“We have 15 days until the window closes,” boss Silva said after Saturday’s 3-0 defeat at home to Brentford.

“The striker position is hard because everyone is looking for one. But we will try hard to replace him.

“I am 100% sure we will try and invest in several new players.”

Offers for Mitrovic were rejected as Fulham attempted to hold onto their key centre-forward.

But he made it clear he wanted the move.

“He forced everything and wanted to leave the club,” Silva said.
