Fulham are looking to bring in reinforcements to their squad and are currently being linked with a move for Andre Carrillo of Benfica. The Peruvian winger spent the last season on loan with English club Watford and it seems like the Cottagers are impressed with what the 27-year-old has to offer.

It is also believed that Marco Silva was keen on bringing him to Everton, having worked with him earlier at Vicarage Road. With Fulham coming into the picture, things could turn out to be interesting in the next few weeks. The Peruvian impressed at the World Cup and the Cottagers are now in the hunt to bring him to Craven Cottage.

Fulham secured the promotion after winning the playoffs. At one time it seems like they had lost the chance for promotion as they missed the opportunity to qualify directly after losing on the final day. However, Jokanovic was able to regroup his team for the playoffs and they went all the way to secure the win.

The Lilywhites will be aware that the real test will be in staying in the Premier League and they will need to add reinforcements to the squad if they want to continue their rise in English football.

Last season at Watford, he had made 30 appearances in all competitions and managed a haul of two goals and two assists. Carrillo is known for his bursting pace and acceleration. However, he needs to bring more composure and street smartness to his game as he often fails to deliver the goods when he finds himself in scoring positions. 

Fulham have a strong left winger in Ryan Sessegnon who started out as a fullback. Credit goes to the Serbian manager as he realised the true potential of the youngster and deployed him further up the pitch. Carrillo, if brought into the team, will play down the right wing and the two of them can cause a lot of problems to the opposition defence given their pace.

The 27-year-old has failed to establish himself at Benfica and his last season at Watford was also average. However, having gotten the experience of the Premier League, we can expect him to take his game a notch higher from here onwards. If the player just manages to add a little bit of goal threat to his game, he will become more lethal. Jokanovic will certainly hope the same, though, he will first have to get his man as Everton are also in the race to sign the Peruvian.
