Fulham manager Claudio Ranieri has admitted the club needs to buy some experienced players in the January transfer window if they are to turn their season around.
The Cottages are 19th in the Premier League with just three wins all season and Ranieri is under no illusions about his sides need to reinforce this month.
“I need somebody who can help us,” Ranieri said in his pre-match press conference ahead of his sides trip to Burnley tomorrow.
“We have a very good team but without experience. We need somebody who has experience, is a leader, has good character, personality and then we can improve our team.”
“We have to bring somebody to survive. It would be a very good boost for all of my players.
“We are looking in every direction and we will see what happens. The transfer market is open and we are ready to take something that can help Fulham.”
The popular Italian manager was appointed as Slavisa Jokanovic’s successor but has so far been unable to shake off the club’s poor form. Money is not an issue at Craven Cottage, with the club having spent £100 millions in the summer, and Ranieri is clearly desperate for new faces to help turnaround the club’s fortunes.
