Fulham have reportedly gone all in on Bafetimbi Gomis, which will keep them from signing Tom Huddlestone.
Tom Huddlestone's rumored move to Fulham appears to be off. The latest reports have Fulham going all in on Bafetimbi Gomis, a buy that will take all of their available money and leaving none to chase Huddlestone.
Appears that Fulham pouring their resources into a bid for Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis. Tom Huddlestone deal one of the casualaties ...— Sam Wallace (@SamWallaceIndy) January 31, 2013
It's strange that the Cottagers would go after a striker when they do desperately need a central midfielder. Either they think Emmanuel Frimpong is enough to shore up what is a horrid central midfield or Dimitar Berbatov's hamstring injury is very serious and they need cover for him.
If Fulham is able to nab Gomis and Huddlestone stays at Tottenham Hotspur, there might be an explosion at White Hart Lane. To see a striker, and a good one at that, move to London, while Spurs are left without a striker and still overstocked in midfield would be a killer.
