2 Fulham players Scott Parker should look to offload in January
Nov. 06, 2019
Fulham have had an inconsistent start to the new season under Scott Parker and sit in 8th place in the Sky Bet Championship table.
Their disappointing 3-0 defeat to Hull City at Craven Cottage on Saturday was their fourth loss of the season, and their second in five league matches.
Questions were asked of the manager after the game following such a demoralising performance at home, as Fulham had expected to be challenging near the top of the table this term.
What will frustrate the fans the most is that on paper, the West Londoners have one of the best teams in the league.
That is despite only signing six players in the summer , three of which are loans.
After the mega spending spree of Summer 2018 of over £100 million didn’t work out as the owners would’ve hoped, Fulham have had to cut their cloth accordingly, which may mean more players leaving in January to balance the books.
Here is who FLW think The Cottagers should try and move on during the January window to free up the wage bill…
The 24-year-old Frenchman has seen his opportunities limited this season for Fulham, being limited to one start and six appearances off the bench.
It all went downhill for the forward during last season, as an internal incident resulted in him being arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm and “ banned indefinitely from all club activities .”
He was frozen out of the first team picture and sent on loan to Turkish side Yeni Malatyaspor for the remainder of last season.
Since returning, he does not seem to be in Parker’s plans, and could look for new pastures in January.
Maxime Le Marchand
The Frenchman arrived from Ligue 1 side OGC Nice in the summer of 2018, for a fee of £3.6 million , but it has not worked out in West London for the Brittany-born defender.
This season, he has made seven appearances, but been able to dislodge Alfie Mawson and Tim Ream at the heart of the defence.
Following Joe Bryan’s injury suffered against Hull, Le Marchand filled in at left-back, but fans did not take to his performance well.
