Fulham reportedly struck a deal to take over Tottenham flop Carlos Vinicius from Benfica.

However, he found more joy in cup competitions, scoring nine goals in 13 matches in the Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup.
According to Portuguese outlet fileFulham will initially pay £4.3million for Vinicius, but the deal could eventually go up to £9.5million. The report adds that Benfica will secure a 50% resale clause.
The 27-year-old joined PSV on a two-year loan last summer, but that deal was slated to allow him to move to Craven Cottage.
He scored seven goals in 36 games for the Orange last season and has so far appeared twice in the new season.

Fulham’s move to Roma’s Justin Kluivert failed as he was denied a work permit
Fulham have brought in seven new signings this summer after their return to the Premier League, but have only made one new addition to their attack: Israeli winger Manor Solomon, who is on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk.
However, the 23-year-old has been sidelined for a long period of time as he has to undergo knee surgery, while the Cottagers’ move for Roma’s Justin Kluivert has failed as the Dutchman was denied a work permit.
Aleksandar Mitrovic has started the season in sensational form with five goals in five games, but Silva is keen to support the Serb in the final third.
Fulham continues to chase Blackburn striker Ben Brereton Diaz as the clock ticks towards the deadline, while Marseille forward Bamba Dieng is another target but is expected to sign for Leeds.
