Fulham sign Willian, Vinicius, James and Kurzawa

Fulham signed striker Carlos Vinicius from Benfica in a deal worth £4.5m, brought in Dan James and Layvin Kurzawa on season-long loans, and competed the signing of  Willian on a busy transfer deadline day at Craven Cottage. 

The arrival of the 27-year-old Vinicius (pictured), who spent time on loan at Tottenham in the 2020/21 season – scoring one goal in nine appearances – ends Marco Silva’s quest for a striker to back-up the in-form Alekasandar Mitrovic.

Former Chelsea star Willian, 34, has been training with the Whites and was keen to return to England following a brief spell with Corinthians in his native Brazil.

He had seven years at Chelsea before spending a season at Arsenal. He left the north London club by mutual consent last summer.

“I’m happy to be here. I’m happy to be back in the Premier League,”

“Fulham is a special club, a club that wants to improve, that wants to fight for something bigger, so I’m here to help, and I cant wait to get started.”

He told FFCtv.

Wales international James arrived from Leeds in the final hours of the transfer window, while left-back Kurzawa came in from Paris St-Germain earlier on Thursday.
