Fulham Considering Move For This QPR Star To Replace Their Captain: Can He Be As Good As Cairney?

Fulham are considering a move for QPR player Luke Freeman to replace Tom Cairney should the Lilywhites captain leave the club. In a pulsating month of English football, the football fans have been further treated to some truly exciting transfers. With another four days yet to go before the window slams shut, clubs are now desperate to wrap up their final deals.

The story of Cairney leaving Fulham has been ongoing for weeks now with West Bromwich Albion and West Ham United both interested in the midfielder. The side from Craven Cottage is now seventh in the Championships table with 45 points from 28 games. They are still harbouring hopes of qualifying for the playoffs as they are only 1 point away from sixth-placed Sheffield United and a positive result for them combined with a draw or a defeat for Sheffield would see Fulham jump into the playoffs.

The Fulham board clarified earlier in January that they are not looking to sell any player this window and instead will be looking to add a couple of new faces to their squad to help the team fight for a playoff spot. However, West Ham United’s interest in Cairney is booming and Fulham may be resigned to losing the midfielder. The 26-year-old has been in excellent form this season at Craven Cottage and West Ham are ready to reward him by bringing him to the Premier League.

The 26-year-old has been in playing some fine football this season for the Lilywhites and West Ham would find Fulham, who made it clear that they are not ready to part ways with any of their players and instead wants to bring in a few new faces, to be a major stumbling block in the progress of the deal.

Cairney has scored around 22 goals in over 100 appearances for Fulham and would have been a good deal for West Ham, given his football dynamics. However, agreeing to a deal with a Fulham side for £15 million, who will want to keep their captain, will now be the main focus of the deal.

In an attempt to replace the possibly departing Cairney, Fulham are ready to replace him with QPR midfielder Luke Freeman However, it could prove to be highly unlikely with the Hoops absolutely refusing to part ways with their star man. The 25-year old has scored 3 goals in 30 games and made a league-high 10 assists for QPR.
