Fulham are ready to battle Tottenham for the signature of Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, The Daily Mail state.
The Netherlands international moved to the Italian capital from Ajax last summer, but is said to have failed to settle at his new club.
As such, Stekelenburg has been linked with a move elsewhere, with Tottenham eager to bring him to White Hart Lane after being priced out of a move for Hugo Lloris.
However, Andre Villas-Boas’ men are set to be rivalled by Fulham, who are also set to launch a £6 million offer for the stopper.
Martin Jol hopes to bring his Dutch countryman to Craven Cottage, who would follow in the footsteps of former fans’ favourite and compatriot Edwin van der Sar .
