Fulham - New Central Defender Link!
The latest in a long line of defenders to be linked with Fulham is Alexander Madlung.
As Roy Hodgson seeks to compile a squad that has both depth and strength in every position, the focus on recruiting a high class defender from Europe has switched to Wolfsberg.
After, reputedly, pursuing Josip Simunic of Hertha Berlin but to no avail, Roy, according to a number of sources, sees Madlung as ideal support or competition for his current centre back pairing of Hughes and Hangeland.
With a fee of £1.5 million being suggested and with the player keen to try his luck in England, Roy, if the transfer comes off, could well have pulled off something of a coup.
We'll try and keep you informed if anything comes of this one.
