Bassey on Fulham radar

Newly promoted English premier league side, Fulham are leaving no stone unturned in their pursuit of Rangers of Scotland and Super Eagles international, Calvin Bassey.

The winners of the English Championship have stepped up their interest in the Nigerian international full-back by making an initial €4 million offer for the Glasgow Rangers defender.

Fulham spent the 2021-22 season in the English Championship but secured their automatic promotion to the English Premier League after another near-flawless campaign.

But more is needed in the English top-flight, and the Cottagers are keen on improving a defence that shipped only 43 goals in 46 league games.

Adding one of the most improved defenders in Europe to their payroll would be a fine step in the right direction.

Bassey catapulted himself into the top half of every major club’s shopping list after an exceptional season with Scottish giants Rangers.

Arguably Bassey’s best game this season came in the Europa League final, in which Rangers lost on penalties to German Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt.

The Super Eagles defender was the only Nigerian named in the Europa League Team of the Season following his exploits in the competition.
