Fulham have secured their promotion to the Premier League after going past Aston Villa in the playoff final. They did it the hard way as they had a chance to qualify directly on the final day of the League season as their second-placed rivals Cardiff City dropped points. However, the Cottagers themselves went on to lose against Birmingham City and that would have been a bitter pill to swallow if they would have lost in the playoff.

However, there are no such concerns now and they are in dreamland currently and are enjoying the riches which one gets by winning the playoff finals. They are set to use some of those financial benefits to bolster and prepare their squad for the upcoming season in the Premier League and they are currently being linked with Sheffield Wednesday striker Fernando Forestieri. The striker has been with the Owls since 2015 and has managed 32 goals in 88 appearances for them.

The 28-year-old will certainly love to play in the top division, however, the Cottagers will face competition from Middlesbrough and Stoke City who are also said to be interested in the Italian forward. Though, Fulham will certainly have an edge as they can offer the former u-21 Italian international a chance to play in the Premier League.

Jokanovic will know that his real test will be in the upcoming season to keep the Cottagers up in the top division so that they can continue to rise in English football. Surviving in the English top flight is a tough task and there is no guarantee of an easy win in the Premier League.

A striker is certainly on top of Jokanovic’s shopping wishlist and it is likely that they will move in for Aleksandr Mitrovic for a permanent transfer in the summer. However, if they miss out on him, things can get tricky for the Serbian manager.

Forestieri will certainly add more depth to the squad if he comes to Craven Cottage. Last season was one to forget for the Italian as he missed 34 games due to a knee injury which had to be operated on. However, he did go on to play 10 games in the Championship and managed a return of 5 goals and one assist in those encounters. The Owls striker will have to fight for his place with the likes of Rui Fonte and Aboubakar Kamara but given his wealth of experience and decent scoring record, he will certainly be a good option to have for Fulham.
