Fulham confirm Torino midfielder Sasa Lukic’s singing for an undisclosed fee as the 26-year-old says he “can’t wait to get started” at Craven Cottage
Fulham have completed the signing of Serbian midfielder Sasa Lukic from Torino for an undisclosed fee.
He joined on a four-and-a-half-year deal, with the option to add another 12 months. It comes as Marco Silva looks to add more quality to his team after an excellent first half of the Premier League season.
The 26-year-old, who can play as number 6 or number 8, played for his country at the World Cup alongside Fulham striker Aleksandar Mitrovic in Qatar last month.
Sasa Lukic joined Fulham on a four-and-a-half-year contract, with an option to extend for one year.
Marco Silva’s team signed him from Italian Torino until the summer of 2027
Speaking to the club after signing on Tuesday, Lukic said: ‘I am very happy to have signed and now to be part of the Fulham team.
‘I can’t wait to get started and meet the head coach, players and staff and I’m looking forward to training with them when I get to England.
“I have watched Fulham play this season and they have been playing very well. They have a good squad, with a great history.

Brazilian midfielder Andre could go to Craven Cottage on loan with an option to buy
“Many great players have played for the Club in its history, and they have many great players today, like my compatriot Aleksandar Mitrović.”
Silva’s ambitious side have reached an unexpected seventh place in the Premier League standings and are looking to attract more talent to help them in their bold bid for a place in one of next season’s European Cup competitions.
Fulham are also expanding their search for new signings to South America and are trying to arrange a loan for 21-year-old Brazilian midfielder Andre.
The club are seeking a loan deal with a £17.5m option to buy the defensive midfield star and have stepped up their efforts to secure his services in the remaining days of the mid-season transfer window.
Andre has enjoyed an impressive season for Fluminese, making 61 appearances for the Brazilian Serie A side and scoring twice in all competitions.
