Fulham on brink of signing Sassuolo defender Marlon Santos

Fulham are pushing to close a deal for Sassuolo defender Marlon Santos.

The Daily Mail says Fulham will complete the £13.7million signing of Brazilian centre back Marlon from Sassuolo pending his medical.

Barcelona had a buy back option for the 25-year old but declined to take it up paving the way for Fulham to conclude a deal.

Marlon is due in London in Thursday ahead of finalising terms.

Fulham have suffered two defeats in their opening two Premier League fixtures and Scott Parker is looking to strengthen his squad before the end of the window.

Marlon would help bolster the Cottagers defence after they conceded seven goals across the two opening league games, with Arsenal scoring three before Leeds put four past them.
