Cottagers linked with Polish ace

Fulham are believed to be close to agreeing a deal for Poland

international striker Robert Lewandowski with his Polish club Lech

Poznan.

Roy Hodgson is thought to be lining up a loan switch for the

young frontman as he looks to bolster his attacking options.

Fulham are exploring the idea of signing the 21-year-old on

loan until the end of the season with a view to a permanent deal in

the summer.

Lewandowski is currently the top scorer in Poland’s domestic

league and he has attracted interest from the likes of Birmingham,

Borussia Dortmund and Shakhtar Donetsk in the past.

The player’s agent, Cezary Kucharski, is expecting Fulham to

firm up their interest by tabling an offer when the transfer window

officially opens next month.

“It’s true, there is interest on the part of the club. We are

expecting a concrete offer soon,”

Kucharski is quoted as saying in the Daily Mail. Fulham are

thought to be in the market for striking reinforcements to provide

cover for Bobby Zamora with Andy Johnson struggling with injury.
