Fulham are lining up a £500,000 move for Greek international Vasilis Torosidis, according to The Sun.

The Olympiakos right back is known to want out of Athens and considers this January transfer window as a perfect opportunity to leave his native country.

And with Jol in the market for a full back, with the departure of Stephen Kelly to contend with, Fulham are looking to exploit Torosidis' want-away wishes.

Roma are thought to be interested as well, though, and may well battle with Jol for the 27 year-old's signature but, with fellow countryman Giorgos Karagounis in South West London, Torosidis could be tempted by a Premier League move.

"I'm not going to sign a new deal," said Torosidis, as quoted in The Sun.

"I want to move abroad."
