Fulham fans on Twitter are buzzing after the signing of Anthony Knockaert was announced on Sunday evening.
The Frenchman becomes Fulham’s second signing of the summer after the arrival of Ivan Cavaleiro on loan from Wolves.
Much like Cavaleiro, Knockaert arrives on an initial season-long loan deal, but Fulham do have the option to make that permanent at the end of next season.
Knockaert should be a cracking signing for the London club as the last time he was in the Championship he won the division’s Player of the Year award.
This leaves Fulham with one of the most potent attacking lines in the division. Cavaleiro contributed to 21 goals in his last Championship campaign, Aleksandar Mitrovic has just hit double figures in the Premier League and the Frenchman contributed to 23 goals back in 2016/17.
Fans were understandably over the moon with this signing.
Here’s how the Craven Cottage faithful reacted on Twitter…
Our team is better than it was last season. Front 4 of Cairney – Cavaleiro Mitrovic Knockaert is the best the league has ever seen
