Fulham are plotting a double raid on fellow relegation battlers West Ham for Ravel Morrison and Mohamed Diame, according to reports from The Express.

Cottagers chief Rene Meulensteen is rumoured to have significant funds at his disposal for the current transfer window, and is ready to strengthen his squad further following the loan arrival of Clint Dempsey.

Morrison and Diame have emerged as his top targets, and he is hopeful of snapping up the duo for around £7.5m

Morrison is Meulensteen’s top target, and he is ready to launch a £4m offer for the unsettled youngster.

The pair worked together at United, with the Dutch coach known to be a massive fan of the trouble starlet.

It’s likely that their opening offer will be rebuffed by West Ham, yet Morrison may push for a move with reports suggesting that he is looking to quit the club.

Diame is seen as a more realistic target, with the holding midfielder having a £3.5m release clause in his contract.

Fulham are ready to trigger this, and are confident that they can tempt him to make the short trip across London to join their battle against the drop.

Their hopes will be further boosted by speculation that the Senegalese ace is unsettled at Upton Park with the Hammers unwilling to meet his £75,000-per-week wage demands.
