Fulham will continue their pursuit of Martin Jol on Wednesday by meeting representatives of the Dutch coach's current club Ajax.
Chief executive Alistair Mackintosh is in Amsterdam to meet with Ajax officials as he attempts to negotiate the release of the former Tottenham manager.
Jol is believed to be keen to return to the Premier League to replace Roy Hodgson in the Craven Cottage hot-seat.
The Cottagers have been without a manager since Hodgson joined Liverpool almost three weeks ago, since when Ray Lewington has been in caretaker charge.
On Tuesday, stories from the Netherlands claimed the 54-year-old had agreed to stay with Ajax in principle after the club agreed to his demands that new players needed to be signed before the start of the 2010-11 campaign.
However, it now appears that Ajax are refusing to negotiate and the two clubs are at an impasse.
Ivory Coast coach Sven-Goran Eriksson has also been linked with the vacancy at Craven Cottage as have United States coach Bob Bradley and Switzerland's Ottmar Hitzfeld.
