ENGLISH Premier League giants Arsenal and Newcastle United have both expressed an interest in buying Fulham’s Nigeria-born central defender Tosin Adarabioyo during the summer transfer window following his club’s relegation from the top flight.
Adarabioyo, 23, has been one of Fulham’s revelations this season, making 31 appearances in what was his first full Premier League season. He joined Fulham from Manchester City on transfer deadline day last October, in a deal worth £1.5m having come through the ranks with the Premier League champions.
However, Fulham have been relegated despite showing a lot of promise and given Adarabioyo’s scintillating form, it is certain that the club will forced to sell him. Eligible to play for both Nigeria and England, Adarabioyo is yet to commit his international future to the Supers like team mates Ola Aina, Ademola Lookman and Josh Maja.
Fulham were relegated last week following a 2-0 home defeat at the hands of Burnley and as the Cottagers begin preparing for a return to the Championship, they must brace themselves for the prospect of losing some of their most talented players. It appears that Adarabioyo’s displays have caught the eyes of both Mikel Arteta and Steve Bruce among others and both are poised to make bids at the end of the season.
