Report: Fulham eye move for Martin Hinteregger

Martin Hinteregger

Fulham are reportedly showing keen interest in signing Martin Hinteregger.

The Cottagers are once again looking to bolster their squad this summer following their return to the Premier League.

However, they are cautious with their funds and want to use it wisely.

Scott Parker has already made four signings this summer. He signed Anthony Knockaert from Brighton, Antonee Robinson from Wigan, and Southampton duo Harisson Reed and Mario Lemina.

Parker is now looking to add a central defender this summer. The London club have been linked with a move for Chris Smalling and Ola Aina in recent weeks, but a new name has come up today.

According to reports from The Sun (printed edition; page 62), Fulham are showing keen interest in signing Austria defender Martin Hinteregger.

The report claims that Parker wants to bring the Frankfurt defender to Craven Cottage this summer, and Fulham could make a formal move for him.

The 27-year-old initially joined Frankfurt from FC Augsburg in 2018, and impressed heavily. The move was made permanent last summer.

The former Red Bull Salzburg defender made 49 appearances in all competitions last season and scored nine goals.

The 45-times capped Austria international will bring loads of quality to the side, and it remains to be seen whether Fulham can reach a deal to sign him in the coming weeks.
