Silva: Fulham have work to do in the transfer market after Mitrovic exit

Marco Silva admitted Fulham have a lot of work to do in the transfer market ahead of the September 1 deadline after a deal was agreed with Al-Hilal for star striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Mitrovic was absent from Fulham's 3-0 defeat at home to Brentford in the Premier League on Saturday ahead of his imminent switch to Saudi Arabia.

Silva highlighted the need for Fulham to invest during the final weeks of the window, but also identified the struggles of finding the right players to fill the role of the Serbian forward.

"It's not just about replacing Mitrovic," said the Fulham boss.

"Unfortunately we still have many things to do (in the transfer window) and, unfortunately for me as manager of this football club, we still have four or five players to sign.

"We have 15 days to finish in the market and the striker position and the striker market is not an easy one, as you know, because many clubs are also looking for the same.

"We have to find the right player to replace him and, if not we are going to play in the Premier League with the players we have here.

"If you ask me if we're going to invest, then I'm 100 per cent sure we are going to invest. But just with one player? No, there's more players which we need to invest in. But I am not sure to find the replacement (for Mitrovic) because the market is not easy."
