According to a report from TWTD, Championship outfit Fulham have been keeping a close eye on Ipswich Town’s young midfielder Flynn Downes in the early stages of the season.

It has been reported by TWTD that ahead of the January transfer window, Ipswich Town midfielder Flynn Downes has been watched over by Championship promotion hopefuls Fulham. The Cottagers’ preparations for the January transfer window are well underway and with Chelsea defender Michael Hector already on his way to the club, Fulham could look to add some more in January.

And, one of the players reported to be on their radar is Ipswich midfielder Downes, who has enjoyed a thoroughly successful first half of the season with the high-flying Portman Road club. Fulham’s assistant director of football operations and chief scout Brian Talbot is said to have been in attendance of the club’s FA Cup clash with Lincoln City and they are continuing to monitor him as the transfer window nears.

Downes has started in 13 League games for the League One table-toppers so far, scoring one goal and providing one assist along the way. His form has seen him earn a place in the England Under-20s squad once again after making his debut for the team in November of last year. Downes has been tipped for a big future in the game, with many believing he has the potential to become a Premier League regular.

It will be interesting to see if the Tractor Boys are able to fend off the interest from Fulham this January as they look to keep Downes on board in their efforts to return to the Championship this season.
