Fulham have been given permission to speak to number one striker target Diego Rolan by Bordeaux.
Rolan met with the French club’s hierarchy earlier this week and has reportedly expressed his desire to speak to the Whites ahead of a move to England.
The striker, who scored nine goals last season, only has one more year on his current deal at Bordeaux, so a fee will be involved and Fulham have money to spend as they bid to return to the Premier League after missing out on promotion in the play-offs last term.
The player was previously valued at around £12m but the Whites will be confident of landing him for much less.
Fulham have been in the market for a striker after seeing Chris Martin return to Derby when his loan spell came to an end.
The Whites made their first summer signing last week when they captured Marcelo Djalo for an undisclosed fee.
