Fulham close in on £2m PSV star

PSV striker Ola ToivonenFulham boss Martin Jol is close to agreeing a £2m deal for PSV Eindhoven attacker Ola Toivonen, according to reports from the Sunday People.

The Swedish international is a former target of the likes of Liverpool, and is widely regarded as one of the Eredivisie’s top talents.

However, a contract dispute with his current employers has plunged the 26-year-old’s future into doubt, opening the door for Fulham to pounce.

Jol is keen to bolster his attacking options this summer after watching his side slump dangerously close to relegation during the latter half of last season.

But, the Dutchman will have limited funds to do so, making a £2m offer for Toivonen an attractive proposition.

The PSV man is capable of playing as the focal point of the attack, or dropping deeper, and could forge a strong relationship with talismanic hit-man Dimitar Berbatov.

Toivonen has gained a reputation for his goalscoring prowess in Holland, netting 59 goals in just 129 appearances for his current employers.

The former Malmo man has also been impressive on the international stage, notching 33 caps.

He is seen as an ideal replacement for Mladen Petric, who left Fulham last week after his contract expired.

Can Ola Toivonen take Fulham to the next level?
