Cottagers Rebuffed In Attamah Offer

Fulham have reportedly seen a bid for Istanbul Basaksehir defender Joseph Attamah rejected.

The Cottagers have shipped a league-high 49 goals from 22 games this season and manager Claudio Ranieri is desperate to bring in some defensive reinforcements before the end of the month.

Several names have been linked with a switch to Craven Cottage but Fulham appear to be putting all their efforts into acquiring the services of Attamah, who has slipped down the pecking order at Basaksehir.

The 24-year-old made 25 league appearances in the previous campaign but he has only featured in five Super Lig games this term, leaving doubts over his long-term future in Turkey.

Ranieri is now hoping he can tempt the defender, who can play centre-back, full-back and as a holding midfielder, into a change of scenery and make the move to the Premier League.

Fulham have reportedly had an initial bid, believed to be worth £3-4million, rejected although they are expected to return with an improved offer in the coming days.
