Fulham agree deal to sign Sevilla striker Lucas Ocampos

Sevilla forward Lucas Ocampos will decide on a move to Fulham after the clubs agreed the terms of a deal for his switch to Craven Cottage.

The 29-year-old has been on Marco Silva’s radar in his search for wide attacking options which has seen the club look at Everton’s Demarai Gray and Chelsea’s Callum Hudson-Odoi.

With a broad agreement in place for Ocampos to move to the Premier League, the deal rests on whether the Argentine wants to leave behind Champions League football in Seville after winning the Europa League last season.

Ocampos had a loan at Ajax last season which was cut short and saw him return to Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan Stadium where he played a part in their Europa triumph, which included victory against Manchester United.

He has been available for the right deal this summer, with Sevilla considering offers for some of their biggest assets including Morocco goalkeeper Bono, who has joined Al-Hilal in the Saudi Pro League.

Fulham are expected to have a busy final week of the summer transfer window, with Swansea goalkeeper Steven Benda their immediate priority after announcing the signing of Leicester full-back Timothy Castagne.

After selling Aleksandar Mitrovic, also to Al-Hilal, Silva would ideally like Werder Bremen striker Niclas Fullkrug but his Bundesliga club are not willing to sell the Germany international. Ajax left-back Owen Wijndal is also on their list of potential targets.

Tuanzebe training with Luton

Former Manchester United centre-back Axel Tuanzebe has been training at Luton Town as he looks for a new club.

Tuanzebe, 25, had eight years as a pro at Old Trafford before leaving this summer following loans at Aston Villa, Napoli and Stoke.

Luton have been assessing centre-backs since the start of the season in the Premier League and they have conceded seven goals in two games.
