Sociedad defender on Fulham radar

6th February 2019, 16:32 by Bobbie Jackson

Fulham are understood to have entered the race to snap up highly-rated Real Sociedad defender Diego Llorente next summer.

The 25-year-old is a graduate of Real Madrid’s academy and he went on to make a handful of appearances for the senior team.

After failing to establish himself as a regular at the Bernabeu, Llorente agreed to join Sociedad on a five-year deal in the summer of 2017.

He has helped to shore things up at the back for the Basque outfit and his performances have led to interest from across the continent.

West Ham and Roma were previously credited with an interest and reports claim Fulham are now in the hunt for his signature.

A move for the defender would depend on whether or not the Cottagers can beat the drop this season.
