Fulham look at Man City's Ibrahim

Mike Hewitt

Tabloids link us with the 22 year-old midfielder, whose contract runs out at the end of next season

Fulham are amongst a host of Premier League clubs who are keeping an eye on Manchester City midfielder Abdisalam Ibrahim.

The 22 year-old wants out of the Etihad after failing to receive assurances over his future and City would appear happy to sanction a cut price move for a player they had previously rated very highly.

While his status in Manchester appears to have withered away, Arsenal, Everton and West Bromwich Albion are supposedly following the youngster after a series of impressive performances on loan for Norwegian side Strømsgodset.

It's clear to see why Martin Jol would be keen on the player, given our manager's willingness to add a younger edge to our starting eleven. Having failed to impress substantially under Roberto Mancini, he should be available at a reasonable price, too.

He's been dubbed as the new Patrick Vieira and has also been likened to Yaya Toure, though both appraisals have yet to be proven at Premier League level. Strong in the tackle, Ibrahim could certainly be a worthy asset in midfield but he would have to outshine both Emmanuel Frimpong and Eyong Enoh, players Martin Jol is sure to prefer.
