According to the report, “Tottenham youngster Oliver Skipp is a target for Fulham. The London club want to do a deal with their city rivals since their Premier League promotion. The Evening Standard says Fulham want to sign Skipp on a single year loan deal for next term. Manager Scott Parker wants to strengthen his squad after winning the play-off final against Brentford to get promotion. Skipp would get the game time he wants in the Premier League, and he has reportedly told his manager Jose Mourinho he wants a loan move this coming season. Fulham also want Ryan Sessegnon and Jack Clarke, but Sessegnon is one who Mourinho does not want to lose. Clarke may also get a chance to show his first team value at Spurs next term.”
