Fulham have secured a return to the Premier League by beating Aston Villa 1-0 in the Championship play-off final last month.
The Cottagers were excellent throughout the previous season. Led by the likes of Ryan Sessegnon, Ryan Fredericks and Tom Cairney, Fulham played arguably the best football in the second-tier competition.
However, things will be different in the Premier League and Slavisa Jokanovic must bring in some experienced players to retain their top-flight status beyond the end of next season.
With that in mind, here are three experienced Premier League players the Cottagers should look to sign this summer.
Chancel Mbemba (Newcastle United)
Chancel Mbemba appeared just 9 times for Newcastle this past season as the 23-year-old defender failed to impress in the latter half of the previous campaign. However, Mbemba could be a massive signing for newly-promoted Fulham.
The Congolese is a no-nonsense defender and would provide some much-needed experience and solidity to the Fulham backline. Strong in the air and solid at tackling, Mbemba could be an ideal signing for the Cottagers.
Jack Wilshere (Arsenal)
Jokanovic must strengthen every single department to build a team capable of enjoying a successful campaign in the top-flight.
The Serbian should consider signing £90,000-a-week Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere, who will be available on a free transfer this summer.
Wilshere’s career has been blighted with various injuries but when fit, he is one of the most exciting midfielders to watch in the Premier League. The 26-year-old possesses excellent technical abilities and has the skill to dictate the tempo of the game from the middle of the park. He is creative, hard-working and is blessed with a fabulous range of passing.
Despite the fact that he is only 26, Wilshere already has vast Premier League experience and that could prove to be valuable for Fulham next season.
Danny Ings (Liverpool)
Danny Ings has had a forgettable time at Anfield with recurrent injuries halting his progress. He is not the first-choice striker under Jurgen Klopp, with the German tactician favouring Roberto Firmino to lead Liverpool’s attack.
Hence, a loan move to join Fulham could be ideal for Ings to resurrect his stuttering career. In fact, the ex-Burnley striker would fit right in with how the Cottagers play their football under Jokanovic.
With his speed, agility and desperation for first-team football, Ings will be a superb addition for Fulham.
