FEATURE | What can Fulham expect from André Frank Zambo Anguissa?

Andre Frank Zambo Anguissa is on the verge of a stunning move to the Premier League with Fulham for €30m. The soon to be former OM man would represent insane value for the Europa League finalists who initially scooped him from under the radar in Reims’ reserve team for less than £500,000 back in 2015.

The Cameroonian international has clearly developed leaps and bounds over the last three seasons, having gone from a player expected to feature on the periphery, to an undisputed starter and a fully-fledged international for the current African champions. Zambo Anguissa is a powerful midfielder used deep in Rudi Garcia’s 4-2-3-1 formation. His tenacity in the middle of the park alongside stalwart Luiz Gustavo has helped OM nullify attacks and create fast turnovers of play going forward.

His movement across the defence has enabled him to cover the defence well. While defensively strong, from time to time ball control and pin-point passing could be an issue in the rough and tumble of the Premier League, a fact enlarged by his major mistake in May’s UEFA Europa League final that allowed Atletico to open the scoring.

Many in Marseille appreciate a player who has performed nonetheless exceedingly well, particularly in 2017-18’s satisfactory campaign. But with the figure that has been touted, it’s safe to say Marseille will take the deal and run.
