Fulham are interested in a January move for Wolves winger Ben Marshall, as per a report by Get West London.
The London club were apparently interested in the midfielder when he was at Blackburn Rovers, but he opted for a move to Wolverhampton. However, he has struggled to get into the Wolves side who are flying under Nuno Espirito Santo and could be set to leave the club in January.
Marshall, 26, has only played 17 times for Wolves since joining in January. Born in Salford, Marshall played in the Manchester United academy before joining Crewe Alexandra as a 14 year-old. After progressing through the youth ranks at Crewe, Marshall joined Stoke City in 2009 but never played for them. He had loan spells with Northampton, Carlisle, Cheltenham and Sheffield Wednesday.
He signed for Leicester in January 2012. He spent a year and a half with the Foxes before signing for Blackburn Rovers. He played 126 games for Rovers and scored 11 goals. His good early form last season attracted the attention of Wolves, who swooped in for him in January.
Fulham boss Slavisa Jokanovic will be fully aware that Marshall is available for transfer. The Serbian boss will be looking to add more faces to his squad in January to bolster the chances of another promotion push this season. Marshall can also play right-back as well as right midfield so would fit in well with Fulham’s attacking full back style of play.
There will no doubt be other interest from Championship clubs for Ben Marshall too, so Fulham will have to see of competition for him.
