18-year-old talent veers towards Fulham as circumstances evolve
Caughtoffside are today discussing reports that Fulham are trying to sign Club Brugge attacker Antonio Nusa.
We’ve seen the youngster linked to Chelsea many times, and there have been moments where a move to Stamford Bridge has seemed inevitable.
However struggling Fulham are desperate to bring some attacking quality in in January, and they can offer him a direct route to immediate first team football in the Premier League which may prove tempting.
For his part, Nusa has made his intentions to stay in Belgium and continue developing until at least the end of this season very clear. He’s still only 18, after all. But if he feels there’s a chance to step up to Premier League football and play right away, he might well take it.
Chelsea on the other hand may prefer to find out what they’ve got in their other youngsters signed over the last couple of years before they invest in yet another wonderkid.
