Fulham to battle Everton for De Camargo

Player's agent confirms there is interest from both sides but nothing has been decided yet

Alex Grimm

The agent of Borussia Monchengladbach striker, Igor De Camargo, has admitted that Fulham and Everton are interested in signing his client.

De Camargo, a Belgian international, has been told by his club that he is no longer a first team regular and, understandably, he wants a move away.

Whether that move will be to England is up for debate as the player's representative, Paul Stefani, also confirmed there was interest from Germany.

"Nothing is decided," Stefani told Sky Sports.

"We have talked with Everton and also with Fulham, and we will talk again - but we do not know what will happen, there are other clubs too.

"We have talked with teams in Germany also, and hopefully we will know more soon."

Monchengladbach general manager Max Eberi, confirmed that a move could be imminent.

"Igor de Camargo is actually discussing a transfer as he is no first-team regular at our club," he said.

"Lately we have been receiving several enquiries from clubs around Europe, I am able to confirm there is interest from Premiership clubs in his services."

De Camargo is a powerful striker, originally born in Brazil, who would add a dimension to the Fulham front line that has been lacking since Pavel Pogrebnyak departed for Reading in the summer.

The 29 year-old has a physical presence that is easily comparable with our former Russian forward - they're both 6 ft 2 in - and both have technical proficiency that belies their stature.

It could well be what Fulham have been lacking, with Dimitar Berbatov having to spearhead the attack without any hefty support.

De Camargo is good in the air - a feature which only Hugo Rodallega can seemingly match in Fulham's current crop - and, though not a prolific goalscorer, finds the net with sufficient regularity.

Whether Martin Jol can fight off David Moyes for his signature, though, remains to be seen.
