Fulham in last-gasp striker search

Fulham have been linked with moves for strikers Hugo Rodallega and Pavel Pobrebnyak, as the Craven Cottage outfit look to bolster their attack before the transfer window closes on Tuesday.

With Andy Johnson’s contract expiring and a dependence on attacking midfielder Clint Dempsey to contribute with goals, Martin Jol is thought to be eager to add a new forward to his squad for the remainder of the season.

The Daily Mail report that The Cottagers have offered £2million plus Andy Johnson in a player-plus-cash deal to Wigan to try and bring Rodallega to London, which is being considered by The Latics.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports have stated that Stuttgart marksman Pogrebnyak is undergoing a medical with the Premier League side.

The Russia international has fallen out of favour with the Bundesliga team and is eager to find first-team football ahead of Euro 2012.

West Brom had been linked with the eastern European also, but Fulham are now reportedly close to signing the 28-year-old, who will become a free agent in the summer.

Lastly, reported Fulham target Marc Janko has left Dutch side Twente to join Porto, ending speculation that he could be moving to the Premier League.
