Tosin Adarabio was hoping to leave Fulham, but things have changed.
The Englishman is a decent center back option. He’s quite tall at 196 cm and has good basic defense. Being of African descent, he has good movement and soft hands, and can use his height to compete for aerial balls. He was criticized for not being a modern center back due to his poor passing, but this has improved since his move to Fulham.
He grew up at Manchester City. He gained experience through the age groups and made appearances in the UEFA Champions League (UCL) and English Football League Cup (EFL Cup) in the 2016-17 season.
However, he was unable to break into the ‘ultra-luxury’ Man City squad. Eventually, he was sent out on loan to West Bromwich Albion (WBA) for the 2018-19 season and Blackburn Rovers for the 2019-20 season. The loan spells went well. At WBA, he played a full season for the first time, making 35 appearances, including cup competitions, and at Blackburn, he scored three goals in 35 appearances, including cup competitions.
Still, there was no place for him at City, so he pushed for a move to Fulham ahead of the 2020-21 season. Having already proven himself on the English stage, Fulham used him as their first-choice center back. After two consecutive seasons in the first team, he saw his role diminish somewhat last season, making just 25 league appearances.
He was even linked with a move away last summer. European football transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano wrote: “Fulham center back Adarabioyo is doing personal training. The club is preparing to sell him. Adarabioyo has expressed his desire to leave the club.”
Tottenham Hotspur have also been approached. “Spurs are holding more advanced talks to sign Fulham center-back Adarabioyo,” the Daily Mail reported.
Of course, the deal didn’t happen, and Adarabioyo stayed at the club. However, he’s been injured this season and has only logged “one minute” of playing time.
A situation that continues to diminish his position. However, Adarabioyo and Fulham seem to be leaning 토토사이트 towards staying rather than moving. “Fulham are expected to reopen talks with Adarabioyo over a new contract, according to British outlet the Ebenezer Standard. He looked set to leave the club last summer, but Marco Silva’s decision to extend his stay until 2026 has opened the door for talks to resume.”
