Fulham are reportedly willing to spend €15million to secure the services of red-hot Real Betis star Alex Moreno this summer.
Moreno has been in spectacular form for Betis over the last season. The left-back scored five goals and provided a further five assists in all competitions during the campaign.
Indeed, that makes it the most successful campaign of his career in terms of goal production. Moreno was also part of a good deal of team success, too.
Betis enjoyed their highest finish in La Liga since the 2004/05 season, as they ended the season in fifth place. They also made it to the last 16 of the Europa League.
The side’s best achievement was their Copa del Rey triumph, though. Betis won the Spanish cup for just the third time in their history this season, and Moreno featured in every game.
Fulham have reportedly registered an interest in Moreno, following his top season. That is according to AS, who report the newly-promoted Premier League side are showing ‘tremendous interest’.
That report also states that Fulham are willing to pay €15million (£12.8million) for the Spaniard.
A fee of that size would be a big one for Fulham. Indeed, should they spend that, it would be the seventh-highest transfer fee they have ever spent.
Following promotion from the Championship, the Cottagers likely have a good deal of funds to utilise. Betis reportedly need to raise funds, so a transfer may well go smoothly.
Indeed, Fulham will want to maintain their Premier League status, and a signing like Moreno could help them to do so.
Alex Moreno should improve Fulham quality
The signing of Moreno should improve the quality in Fulham’s side. The Spaniard has performed well over the last season in La Liga, as well as in Europe.
Adding a player with top-flight experience will be a big addition for the Cottagers. The two left-backs they currently have in the squad do not have a great deal of Premier League experience.
Joe Bryan has played in the Championship for the majority of his career. The two seasons he has played in the Premier League were with Fulham, and both times they were relegated.
Antonee Robinson – who has been preferred to Bryan over the last season – has played just one season in the top flight, the last time Fulham were relegated.
As such, Moreno, who has played in La Liga for the past four seasons, would surely be an improvement on the pair. Robinson, at 24 years of age, could learn from the experienced star, which would also be a positive for Fulham.
