Javi Galan is expected to leave this summer, bringing Fulham to a potential 10 million deal for the Celta Vigo andLa Liga forward, according to Faro de Vigo.
With Antonee Robinson boosting year by year, and with Joe Bryan, who has provided the opportunity to play in reserve, the left-back is not a position many expect Fulham to strengthen ahead of another top-flight return.
The Championship champions, apart from Takumi Minamino, Al-Musrati, and Thomas Strakosha, have two La Liga lefties on their long summer wish list.
Fulham have reportedly received an 8 million offer from Real Betis for the swashbuckling Alex Moreno. Not to be deterred, they will return with a new offer, while declaring to handing a 29-year-old man a long-term contract at Craven Cottage.
Moreno might not be dissatisfied with the possibility of swapping Europa League football for a potential relegation battle. However, this is why Fulham have identified Javi Galan as a more attainable, back-up option.
According to El Desmarque, Fulham have already discussed with Celta Vigo. They are considering a proposal that would see Galan swap Andalusia for West London to a maximum of 10 million people.
A representative of the You First organization, which represents the former Huesca, has said that a number of teams are eager to follow Galan.
Galan is very likely to receive an offer that would turn his head. The defender has spent just one season in Balaidos, joining Celta 11 months ago following Huesca''s relegation.
Javi has passed a valid contract until 2026. He is very comfortable at Celta. However, we will investigate his departure if an offer is suitable for the player and the club.
Galan, a attacking, aggressive full-back, has been linked to Wayne Rooney due to his impressive display. Before the Yorkshire premiership snapped up Junior Firpo, the 27-year-old Galan was reportedly a target for Leeds United.
He has also been linked to, among others, Lazio, Atletico Madrid, and Barcelona.
