Swansea City are interested in securing the signature of Fulham full-back Ryan Fredericks this summer. According to recent reports, the Swans are plotting a move for the Championship defender when the transfer window opens in the summer. However, they could face stiff competition from West Ham United and Everton in pursuit of the Englishman’s signature.
Fredericks have been in majestic form for the Cottagers during the course of this campaign. His dazzling displays for Fulham has caught the eye of Swansea City chiefs who are keen on making an offer to bring him to the Liberty Stadium. It is believed that the Hammers are currently leading the chase and are confident about their chances of making a swoop for his services.
The 25-year-old defender will be out of contract at the end of the season and will be free to choose his next destination. He can be considered as one of the best full-backs in the Skybet Championship after he provided 9 assists in 40 appearances for Fulham in the league this season. The incredible form of Fredericks is one of the main reasons why the Cottagers are performing so well in this campaign. They are now well in contention of securing a promotion back to the Premier League.
The Welsh outfit are currently out of relegation danger and find themselves in the 15th position in the league rankings, just four points above the drop zone and 18th placed Southampton. Carlos Carvalhal’s side are in need of some fresh faces in the summer as they look to build on their performance this season.
The addition of Fredericks will undoubtedly bolster Carvalhal’s defensive options going into the new campaign. The Swans currently have the likes of Martin Olsson, Kyle Naughton and Mike van der Hoorn vying for a place in Swansea’s first-team. The potential signing of Fredericks will definitely add more competition for places in the Carvalhal’s squad.
