Fulham make contact with FC Ural midfielder – former Nottingham Forest target
Speaking to Football League World, FC Ural midfielder Petrus Boumal has claimed that his agent has been contacted over a potential move to the Championship with Fulham.
Earlier this month, FC Ural midfielder Petrus Boumal told Sport Witness that he had previously held talks with a potential move to England. Boumal claimed that Nottingham Forest and Everton have previously been interested in signing him.
Now, Boumal has come out to make more transfer claims. Speaking to Football League World, Boumal has said that Fulham have made contact with his agent over a possible transfer. His contract with Russian side FC Ural comes to an end this summer and now, it has been said that he could make a move to London with Fulham.
Speaking about Fulham’s interest, Boumal said:
“They contacted my agent. But we have to be patient because of everything that is going on in the world today. Teams can’t make decisions just like that and they need time. They need to check the players who will leave.
“But I hope everything will be done soon with my agent and we can find something nice and we can join those teams.
“For Fulham, I know the club and I have friends playing there even now. I hope soon that something concrete comes but we need time. We need to wait because it is not easy for players and agents. There is something more important in the world. But slowly, we are keeping contact. But I think we can get a contract there.”
Boumal, 27, is a Cameroonian defensive midfielder. He started out his career in France with FC Sochaux, previously spending time in the PSG youth setup. He played 12 times for Sochaux’s senior side before leaving for Bulgaria, where he joined FC Litex Lovetch. Boumal spent two years with the club and joined Levski Sofia on a free transfer in 2016.
After three years in Bulgaria, Boumal joined FC Ural, where he remains to this day. The midfielder has also represented Cameroon’s national team on once occasion. He has played 58 times across all competitions for the club and is now on the lookout for a new club.
Fulham fans, is Boumal a player you would like to see your club sign this summer? He is available on a free transfer and in a window where clubs are set to be strapped for cash, a deal could prove to be a shrewd bit of business.
