Fulham believe they have won the race for Wigan Athletic full-back Antonee Robinson.
The 23-year-old USA international is poised to join for £1.9million on a contract worth around £45,000 per week.
The former Everton trainee had interest from Newcastle United, Sheffield United and West Brom but is leaning towards a link-up with bright-thinking Fulham boss Scott Parker.
Fulham are making defence their priority to start strengthening with another centre-back and right-back on their agenda plus a central midfielder.
Sportsmail revealed that Fulham’s recent promotion to the Premier League helped Wolves bag a £10m bonus with the loan of Ivan Cavaleiro to the Cottagers.
Wigan are also expecting offers from Middlesbrough and Bristol City for midfielder Joe Williams.
