Babel has Prem admirers

8th April 2019, 13:28 by Aidan Perkins

Ryan Babel's agent says the Fulham forward will go to whoever pays him the most amid Premier League and Turkish interest.

The Netherlands forward's agent, Winnie Haatrecht, speaking to Turkish newspaper Star, has revealed some Premier League clubs have been in contact about possible deals for the 32-year-old, who has impressed since joining Fulham on a short-term deal.

He will leave the Cottagers in the summer following their relegation down to the Championship and, while a return to Turkey where his former club Besiktas are leading the way to sign him, looks most likely, he could yet stay in England.

Haatrech, however, said ultimately it will come down to whoever offers the former Liverpool man the most money.

He said: "Babel is keen to return to Turkey. Fenerbahce, Galatasaray and Besiktas all want to sign him, but we've had a few offers from Premier League sides.

"He's a free agent and it's easy for us to choose a new team. He will join the club that will pay him the most."

Babel has been one of the few shining lights for Fulham in the second half of the season, scoring three goals in 11 Premier League appearances so far.
