Marco Silva has urged Fulham to “act faster” in the transfer market ahead of the club’s return to the Premier League.

On Monday, Manor Solomon became the third senior signing of the summer at Craven Cottage after joining on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk, following the earlier additions of Andreas Pereira and Joao Palhinha.

The club are also in talks with Arsenal over a potential deal for Bernd Leno and are expected to complete a move for Kevin Mbabu as they attempt to retain their top-flight status for the first time since the 2012/13 season.

Still, Silva spoke of the need to continue adding to the squad in order to avoid relegation while conducting an interview with Portuguese outlet Record.

“We need to act faster, the market has been difficult for us, but we have to act faster, even so the pre-season has been very positive, the players have been giving their all, which is always important, and it’s good to integrate the new players,” he said.

“Its part of a process, we started later than some of our opponents, but it was a positive pre-season.

“We have to have more reinforcements for when the Premier League starts, there is no other way, we still have a few players to sign and they are not that few.

“We know the market only closes on August 31st, but the Premier League starts on August 6th for us. We have to have more players to be at the level that the Premier League requires.”

Fulham begin life back in the Premier League at home to Liverpool on Saturday 6 August before meeting Wolves, Brentford, Arsenal and Brighton before the first month of the season is over.
