Fulham manager Slavisa Jokanovic has said that if Fulham do not get promoted this season, they will be willing to sell their 27-year-old playmaker Tom Cairney for £20M.
That was the price put on the former Hull City and Blackburn player 14 months ago when Rafa was interested in the central midfield player who had two great games against us last season in the Championship.
He certainly looked a good player but 20M is a lot of money and Cairney is untested at the Premier League level.
If Rafa does pay ou £20M for him, it will be a risk, and there should be better value in bringing a player in from the continent for less than £20M.
Tom Cairney – not worth £20M?
We put a poll out to see how Newcastle fans felt about the possible deal and three in four fans do not think it would be a good deal for the club.
Fulham are the team in form in the Championship and are currently 3rd in the league table, 7 points behind second-placed Cardiff and automatic promotion and 8 games to play: Cardiff also have a game in hand.
Their best chance could be to gain promotion through the playoffs.
And maybe Aleksandar Mitrovic can power them to promotion with his goals.
