Fulham are closing in on a deal to sign Besiktas goalkeeper Fabricio Ramirez, according to Sky Sports News.

Accomplished keeper

Ramirez began his career with Spanish side Deportivo de La Coruña for whom he played 51 games, in which he kept 16 clean sheets.

The Spaniard would then join Real Valladolid CF on a free transfer but he would make just three appearances for them before signing for Recreativo Huelva on loan.

Ramirez made 41 appearances for Rec reativo Huelva, in which he kept a total of 15 clean sheets.

Ramirez then joined Real Betis on another free transfer and would make 19 appearances for the Spanish side, keeping three clean sheets in that time.

The 30-year-old then rejoined Deportivo de La Coruña in 2013 on yet another free transfer before eventually moving to Besiktas in 2016 for once again, free.

Ramirez has made 87 appearances for Besiktas, keeping 27 clean sheets in that time but he now looks set for a move to the Premier League this summer.

Play-off winners

Fulham enjoyed a very impressive 2017/18 Championship campaign. They finished 3rd in the Championship and scored a superb 79 goals in 46 league games. Only league winners Wolves managed more.

As a result of finishing 3rd Fulham earned themselves a playoff spot. They would beat Derby County 2-1 over two legs of the semi-final and they would go on to beat Aston Villa 1-0 in the final.

Now that Fulham have returned to the top flight of English football for the first time in four years, they are looking to improve upon their squad in order to survive the upcoming season and signing Fabricio Ramirez would go some way to doing that.
