Fulham have reportedly improved their bid to sign Sasa Lukic according to Fabrizio Romano.
Earlier this week, the journalist revealed that the west London club are were in talks with Torino to sign the midfielder and had made an €8m (£7m) offer to bring him to Craven Cottage.
Now though, some fresh behind-the-scenes details have emerged regarding Fulham’s pursuit of the 26-year-old.
In a recent Twitter post, Romano said this on the matter.
He said: “Fulham have improved their proposal for Sasa Lukic: £10m fresh bid on the table as they hope to get deal done after Torino signed Ivan Ilic as new midfielder on deal hijacked after OM had it done. #Fulham
“Personal terms, another key step – waiting for the player to decide.”
Would you be happy to see Fulham sign Sasa Lukic?
Lukic joined Torino back in the 2016 summer transfer window from Partizan and has since gone on to make 168 appearances for the Italian club across all competitions, scoring 14 goals and delivering six assists along the way.
This season has seen the Serbian show in Serie A how much of a capable midfielder he is on and off the ball.
Specifically, in terms of what he does for the team in possession, Lukic has the second-highest number of shot-creating actions (44) and the third-highest for passes into the final third of the pitch (54) at Torino.
Then in terms of his work off the ball, he ranks second for the number of successful tackles (14) he’s made and third for recoveries (81).
Clearly a capable midfielder, it’s easy to see why Fulham are keen to add Lukic, who has been hailed for his “outstanding” performances in the past by journalist Josh Bunting, to their squad before the January transfer window closes.
Moving forward, if Fulham do end up bringing the Torino star to Craven Cottage in the coming days, this would definitely give Marco Silva an extra midfield figure that certainly has what it takes to become an important player for the club.
