Just a few days ago, it was reported that Premier League club West Ham United were interested in acquiring the services of M’bala Nzola from Italy but are waiting for the right time to table the right offer for the prolific striker.
However, the most recent reports coming from the Italian media is that West Ham’s fellow Premier League outfit Fulham Football Club have taken a front row in the growing queue of the club’s trying to sign the player. News media outlet Foot Mercato published a report on Wednesday that Scott Parker’s Fulham have signified their interest in signing the striker by tabling a first offer which was immediately rejected by the Italian club.
Nzola is currently a man in form and is in fact, one of the most in-form strikers in Europe’s top 5 leagues this season so far after scoring as many as nine goals in just thirteen Serie A games he has appeared in for Italian outfit Spezia Calcio this season.
His fine form has been catching the eyes of potential suitors across Europe with many clubs noticing him and either waiting on the wings to further analyze his strengths or going ahead to make inquiries about him. One of those teams that have been confirmed to have made inquiries about the striker are David Moyes’s West Ham United, with the former Everton manager keeping a close eye on the striker.
In what would come as a huge blow to West Ham though, Fulham have acted like the more interested and serious team by dishing out their first bid. The £10.6m was however rejected by the Italian club as they believe their most prized asset is worthy of commanding a bigger fee than what the Cottagers have out on the table.
