By Agency Report

Fulham are set to table a £7m offer with Torino for midfielder Sasa Lukic today, according to press reports.

The urgency in the Whites’ move to try and sign the Serbian international comes from head coach Marco Silva, who wants to bring in the 26 year-old ‘immediately,’ according to sources.

Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzio also reports that ‘an offer from England is arriving’.
Silva wants to strengthen his options in central midfield, fearing problems should injuries, or suspensions rob him of the services of Fulham’s regular pairing in Harrison Reed and Joao Palhinha.

Lukic, who came through the Partizan Belgrade youth set-up, has made 161 appearances in seven years at Torino, scoring fourteen goals. He has featured sixteen times in all competitions this season, scoring three times, and has won 35 senior caps for his country, representing Serbia at the recent World Cup alongside Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The Varna-born midfielder is versatile: able to operate as a sitting or box-to-box central midfielder or in a more advanced attacking midfield role.

Torino had already made the talented playmaker available for transfer despite his contract with the Serie A club running until the end of next season – so it only remains for Fulham to agree a fee with I Granata.
