Fulham transfers: Will Hughes is a wonderful talent – Martin Jol
Fulham transfers: Martin Jol says Derby's Will Hughes has great talent but admits the Cottagers face a battle to sign the teenager
Martin Jol has described Derby County’s Will Hughes as a “wonderful talent” but admits Fulham face plenty of competition from other Premier League clubs to sign the midfielder.
The 17-year-old has scored two goals in 23 Championship appearances for the Rams this season, sparking interest from the top flight ahead of the January transfer window.
Jol conceded the Cottagers are interested in signing the Under-21 England international but the Dutchman was coy over the possibility of Fulham making a bid for the teenager.
“Believe me, there is probably 10 clubs in the Premier League that are having a look at him,” said Jol.
“He is one of these wonderful talents so he is always on lists. If you have a good scouting system, he will always be on the list but we will see.”
