Fulham eyes Akor Adams, targeted by West Ham and AC Milan

Posted : 21 December 2023

Fulham is actively exploring the possibility of securing Montpellier's in-form striker, Akor Adams, during the upcoming January transfer window. This move comes as a response to the struggles of Raul Jimenez, brought in to replace Aleksandar Mitrovic, who has registered only four goals in 16 league appearances for Craven Cottage.

Manager Marco Silva, in need of attacking reinforcements, has identified Adams as a potential target. Scouts from Fulham have been dispatched to observe the 23-year-old Nigerian forward, who has made a significant impact in Ligue 1, scoring seven goals in 17 appearances for Montpellier since his summer transfer from Lillestrom.

The necessity for attacking prowess at Fulham became apparent after Mitrovic's departure to Al-Hilal in the summer, creating a goal-scoring vacuum that Jimenez, Carlos Vinicius, and Rodrigo Muniz have struggled to fill, tallying only six goals combined. Marco Silva's reliance on wingers and midfielders to find the net underscores the urgency for a reliable striker to bolster Fulham's offensive capabilities.

Akor Adams, standing at 6ft 3ins, possesses the attributes of a traditional target man, fitting seamlessly into Silva's tactical framework. His proficiency in the final third could address Fulham's goal-scoring challenges and contribute to their pursuit of a top-half finish in the Premier League.

However, Fulham faces competition for Adams, as West Ham United has also expressed interest in the Nigerian striker. Additionally, AC Milan is monitoring the situation, looking for a long-term replacement for Frenchman Olivier Giroud. Montpellier acquired Adams for less than five million euros in the summer, but his market value, according to Transfermarkt, has more than doubled since then.
