Fulham agree to loan Everton and Valencia target Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa to Napoli with £9million buy option as they consider the new offer for Swansea’s Matt Grimes
Fulham midfielder Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa concludes a transfer to Napoli.
The Italian side has entered into a loan deal with Fulham with the option to make it permanent for around £9 million.
The move is a big opportunity for the 25-year-old, who made an impression on his return to the Premier League last season and caught the eye of Everton and Valencia.
Anguissa is expected in Naples today for a medical before signing for Luciano Spalletti’s side.

Napoli had been targeting Chelsea’s Tiemoue Bakayoko but he is now moving to AC Milan and Spalletti would be pleased they managed to bring in a midfielder of Anguissa’s caliber.
Fulham is trying to add a new midfielder of their own but has so far been rejected in their bids to sign Swansea City’s Matt Grimes.
The Craven Cottage club was rejected a £2.5million offer this weekend and is considering an improved offer for the 26-year-old who has a one-year contract left.
Grimes is also attracting interest from former Fulham boss Scott Parker in Bournemouth.
