REPORT: Fulham Interested in Wolverhampton Wanderers Defender Ryan Bennett

Ryan Bennett

Fulham are interested in Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Ryan Bennett according to Nick Mashiter and FourFourTwo.

Fulham are desperate for defensive reinforcements after conceding ten goals in their first three Premier League games.

Scott Parker is looking to shore up his very leaky defence and sees Bennett as a viable option.

The report suggests Fulham will target a loan deal for the Wolves centre half. However, it is also noted the defender may well stay at Molineux.

Fulham Interested in Wolves Defender Ryan Bennett

Bennett Would Certainly Help Fulham Shore Up Defensively

Scott Parker is desperate for defensive reinforcements after their most recent league defeat. Fulham were thumped at home by Aston Villa which saw them slump to a third straight defeat. It also took their goals conceded tally to double figures. Only West Bromwich Albion have conceded more goals so far this season.

Fulham’s search for defenders is getting desperate with owner Tony Khan making an impassioned speech on Twitter. He confirmed the search for defenders remains the priority and noted how many targets they have missed out on.

Bennett provides much needed Premier League experience. The defender has struggled for game time at Wolves and had brief loan spell at Leicester City in the second half of last season. He is down the pecking order at Wolves and a move to Fulham offers him regular game time.

Scott Parker has experimented with formations this season and started with a back three against Villa. Bennett is no stranger to playing in a back three with Wolves preferring this setup. The defender should slot into the defence and help the likes of Michael Hector and Tim Ream adapt to the league quicker.

Bennett’s arrival would certainly be a good one for both player and club. His arrival would provide more options and he is someone who can provide the leadership and organisation Fulham are currently craving.
