At the beginning of the year, Sasa Lukic was connected to Leeds United, who were supposedly in the running for the Serbian star. However, Fulham has now agreed to loan out the star for the upcoming month.
Lukic, 27, played a staggering 168 games for Torino in Serie A before joining Fulham for a reported £9 million in January 2023. Lukic made an impression for his nation during the World Cup in Qatar as well.
At the time, Fulham was not the only Premier League team interested. Leeds was rumored to be in the running for Lukic and was also eager to acquire the midfield player. In the end, though, we signed Weston McKennie.
However, he has failed to make an impact at Fulham. Since his transfer, he has played just 25 games for Fulham across all competitions, starting just eight of his 23 Premier League games. It’s hard for him to get game time.
Here’s an update now. Football Transfers reports that Lukic is open to a loan move during the winter transfer window, even with questions over Joao Palhinha’s future. After all, Leeds might be let to have their man.
Sasa Lukic, a midfield player targeted by Leeds, is currently available on loan.
Does Leeds require him? In the middle of the park, however, are Glen Kamara, Ethan Ampadu, and Ilia Gruev, who play for the Whites. Archie Gray as well. However, under manager Daniel Farke, he has been playing on the right side of defense.
Although Lukic excels in holding midfield, his vision and technical skill set make him a deep-lying playmaker, and Leeds could use more offense in their midfield. That might be precisely what we require in the midst.
However, it will be preferred to sign a left-back and a number-10 in January, with loans probably being the norm. Naturally, that is, until someone makes a very expensive move for one of our most valuable assets.
