Sources: Fulham set sights on signing Belgium sensation Antonio Nusa

Fulham are plotting a January move for Club Brugge attacking sensation Antonio Nusa, sources have told Football Insider.

The Cottagers are targeting attacking reinforcements in the mid-season window and it is believed they will have big funds to spend on the right option.

Nusa is on the radar for Marco Silva’s side with his versatility valued highly at Craven Cottage.

The 18-year-old can play on both flanks as well as a centre-forward and is making waves in the Belgian top flight despite his tender age.

Chelsea were widely linked with a potential summer move for the Norway international and have a continued interest in his services.

But it is believed Fulham are planning to beat their west London rivals to a deal by firming up their interest in the starlet in January, with the club ready to use all their financial power to get a move over the line.

Nusa has made 17 appearances across all competitions for Club Brugge this term, notching two goals and three assists.

He has already racked up 53 appearances for the Belgian side and helped them win the Belgian Super Cup in the 2022-23 campaign.

The teenager made his senior debut for Norway in August and scored his first international goal against Jordan in the following month.

Fulham sit 16th in the Premier League and are six points clear of relegation danger – but are among the lowest scorers in the division this term.

The Cottagers are yet to adequately replace talisman Aleksandar Mitrović following his huge-money move to Saudi Pro League Al-Hilal.
