Calvin Bassey, the Nigerian center-back, has left the Netherlands and traveled to the United States of America to undergo a medical examination before finalizing his move to Premier League side Fulham.
This transfer comes after Ajax and Fulham reached an agreement on a deal worth €21 million for Bassey’s services.
Medical Examination Scheduled for July 25, 2023:
Transfers expert Fabrizio Romano has reported that Fulham has already booked the medical examination for Calvin Bassey, which is set to take place later today, July 25, 2023.
Fulham’s Pursuit of Bassey:
Fulham’s coach, Marco Silva, has shown significant interest in bringing Bassey back to the Premier League.
The Nigerian player previously played for Leicester City but couldn’t fully showcase his potential in the league at that time.
However, with Fulham, Silva hopes to provide Bassey with a better platform to succeed.
The Anticipated Deal:
The reported deal between Ajax and Fulham is valued at €21 million.
Calvin Bassey joined Ajax from Glasgow Rangers just last summer, and despite facing criticism from Dutch pundits, he was initially reluctant to leave the club.
He aimed to prove his worth and justify the €23 million Ajax paid for his services less than a season ago.
Amidst Bassey’s desire to stay and play more seasons at Ajax until his contract’s expiration in June 2027, two Premier League clubs, Brighton and Fulham, expressed interest in signing him.
In the end, Fulham emerged victorious in the race for his signature, making progress towards securing the 23-year-old defender.
Calvin Bassey’s move to Fulham appears to be imminent, pending the successful completion of his medical examination.
With the transfer process expected to be finalized soon, Fulham fans may soon see the Nigeria international as their club’s new signing, fulfilling coach Silva’s wish to strengthen their defensive lineup.
