It looks as though it will be a busy day in South West London, with the biggest piece of transfer news so far being that of a Queen's Park Rangers bid for Fulham striker Bobby Zamora.

From what Sky Sports News is reporting, it seems plausible that a fee has been agreed and only some rather outlandish personal demands from Zamora is holding back the deal. With the tension between QPR manager Mark Hughes and Fulham chairman Mohammed Al Fayed still prevalent, the fee may be slightly inflated.

Portsmouth winger Ryan Williams played in a reserve game last night as a trialist and will sign with Martin Jol's squad if he suitably impressed.

Hugo Rodallega's links to Fulham still persist, although suggestions that Andy Johnson could feature in a swap seem wide of the mark.

Marcello Trotta is wanted by Glasgow Rangers on loan - a sign of the big impression he had left with Wycombe Wanderers. He made his Fulham debut as a substitute against Everton but Jol would be happy to see him move North of the border temporarily.

Fulham have failed in a bid for PSG midfielder Clement Chantome, with the Parisian club stating he will not be allowed to leave in this window.

Lucas Barrios rumours have died down somewhat, although his club, Borussia Dortmund, have stated that any bids meeting their £10 million valuation will be accepted.

And the most likely transfer continues to be that of Pavel Pogrebnyak, as reported on Cottagers Confidential last night. If his medical goes okay, paperwork should go through well before the deadline.
