Manchester United and Arsenal keeping an eye on 26-year-old centre-back playing in London

Manchester United and Arsenal are keeping tabs on Fulham defender Tosin Adarabioyo

According to the HITC (h/t Manchester Evening News), Fulham star Tosin Adarabioyo and his impressive performances for Fulham this season have attracted attention from several Premier League clubs, including Arsenal and Manchester United. The 26-year-old defender’s contract with Fulham is set to expire at the end of the season, making him available as a free agent.

Despite Fulham’s efforts to secure a new contract for Adarabioyo, the player has rejected their offers so far. His outstanding form has only heightened interest in his services, and he is now poised to explore his options as a free agent in the upcoming summer transfer window.

With his contract situation unresolved, Adarabioyo’s future remains uncertain, but his talent and consistency on the pitch have made him a sought-after target for clubs looking to bolster their defensive ranks. It remains to be seen which club will secure his signature ahead of the new season.

The youngster has been outstanding this season

Adarabioyo joined Fulham in 2020 after leaving Manchester City, where he caught the eye of manager Pep Guardiola with his promising performances. Since then, he has matured into a well-established Premier League player, showcasing his defensive prowess and contributing offensively with two goals scored.

During his time at Manchester City, Adarabioyo’s talent was evident, earning praise from Guardiola for his performances. His development continued at Fulham, where he has become a key figure in the team’s defensive setup, helping secure several clean sheets in the Premier League.

Adarabioyo’s journey from Manchester City to Fulham has seen him grow and evolve as a player, establishing himself as a reliable presence at the heart of the defence. His contributions on both ends of the pitch make him a valuable asset for any team, attracting interest from top clubs in the Premier League.

Guardiola told The Manchester Evening News about Adarabioyo in August 2016:

“He is fast, he is faster than the people can believe it. He’s strong in the air.”

The star has shut down many great forwards

Several clubs, including Manchester United, are interested in the star

Several top clubs, including Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, Newcastle United, West Ham, and Everton, have been closely monitoring Tosin Adarabioyo’s situation as his contract with Fulham expires at the end of the season.

Manchester United, in particular, are focusing on strengthening their central defence this summer, with several signings anticipated. Lisandro Martinez is a likely addition to the squad, while the futures of Raphael Varane, Jonny Evans, Harry Maguire, and Victor Lindelof are uncertain, with departures or potential sales looming.

Adarabioyo’s availability on a free transfer has intensified interest from these clubs, each seeking to bolster their defensive options. The 26-year-old’s proven Premier League experience and defensive abilities make him an attractive target for teams looking to reinforce their backline ahead of the next campaign.

Erik ten Hag is expected to approve at least one significant signing in central defence for Manchester United, considering several options available in that area. However, in the current landscape where profitability and sustainability rules are strictly enforced, financial resources are not unlimited.

By targeting players like Adarabioyo, Manchester United can reinforce their squad while adhering to financial constraints imposed by PSR regulations, ensuring a balanced approach to squad building that prioritizes both quality and financial prudence.
