Fulham are willing to let Fabricio Agosto leave Craven Cottage this summer.
What’s the talk?
That’s according to a report by Sky Sports (via Football League World), who claim that Marco Silva would be willing to let the goalkeeper leave the club on a temporary basis in the summer transfer window.
The 33-year-old goalkeeper arrived at Fulham from Besiktas JK in what was a £5m move back in 2018, and has one year remaining on his current contract in west London.
Should Fabri be given a chance this season?
Fans will be buzzing
It would appear to be a fair statement to make that Fabricio Agosto has not quite lived up to his price tag since making the move to Craven Cottage three years ago, having made a total of just two first-team appearances for the club.
In fact, the shot-stopper has not featured for the club since 2018, having made his debut in the Cottagers’ season-opening 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace in the club’s 2018/19 Premier League campaign, with his second appearance coming in the very next game, a 3-1 loss to Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Spain U20 international was then sent on loan to RCD Mallorca in 2019/20, where the £45k-per-week ‘keeper made just one appearance in LaLiga, in which he conceded a penalty, three goals and made an error leading to a shot, seeing him earn a dreadful SofaScore match rating of 5.3.
As such, considering the fact that the 33-year-old is taking home such an enormous weekly wage, as well as simply not appearing to be up to the standard required to feature for Fulham week in week out, the fact that Marco Silva is hoping to loan the Spaniard out this summer should have fans of the club buzzing, as it would very much seem as if Fabricio Agosto is a considerable waste of money.
