Fulham and Bournemouth are said to be ready to fight in an attempt to sign Hellas Verona defender Pawel Dawidowicz.
Fulham and Bournemouth would both be interested in signing Hellas Verona defender Pawel Dawidowicz.
After earning promotion from the Championship last season, the Cottagers and Cherries were delighted with their debuts in the new Premier League campaign last weekend.
After Fulham drew 2-2 with last season’s second-placed Liverpool, Bournemouth secured a 2-0 win at home to Aston Villa.
However, Marco Silva and Scott Parker remain keen to strengthen their respective squads before the end of the summer transfer window.
This rings especially true in defence, with both head coaches seeing their respective options in that area of the pitch weaken over the summer.
According Football Insiderwhich has led every side to be interested in signing Dawidowicz over the next few weeks.
The 27-year-old has spent the last three seasons at Verona, making a total of 100 appearances in all competitions and earning recognition on the international stage with Poland.
Dawidowicz won a total of eight caps for his country with one of his exits in the 1-1 draw with England last September.
Verona remain in a strong position when it comes to Dawidowicz’s future, with the defensive-minded player still having three years left on his contract.
Nonetheless, it is suggested that Silva and Parker are both ready to make approaches for a player who can also fill in in the center of midfield.
Fulham have completed the signing of Issa Diop from West Ham United earlier this week, but Silva is keen to bring at least one more new face to this area of the pitch.
The same goes for Bournemouth, who pulled off a coup by winning the race to sign the Argentina international Marcos Senesi from Feyenoord.
However, a proposed move for the Liverpool defender and former loanee Nat Phillips is now in doubt with Ibrahima Konate having suffered a knee injury.
