Fulham make €15m bid for Sassuolo defender Marlon

Fulham have submitted an offer of €15m for Sassuolo defender Marlon, according to Gianluca Di Marzio.

Marlon, 25, likes the idea of playing for Fulham and there is a feeling the deal could be done soon.

With negotiations at an advanced stage, the Brazilian centre-back was on the bench for Sassuolo’s season opener against Cagliari on Sunday.

Tomorrow will be a decisive day because Marlon’s former club Barcelona have a first refusal option.

Barca must now decide whether to match the offer or let him go to Fulham.

Marlon arrived in Europe in 2016 when Barcelona signed him from Fluminense, initially on loan before the Catalan club turned it into a €5m permanent deal.

He was loaned to Nice in the 2017-18 season before Barca accepted a €6m bid from Sassuolo in August 2018.

Marlon has made 41 appearances for the Italian club over the past two seasons.
