Rumoured Arrivals

Rob Kiernan

Rob Kiernan is a favourite at the Ibrox stadium, reports via the Daily Mail suggest that Fulham are preparing an offer of £2M for the central defender. Kiernan is a technically gifted centre half, who is comfortable in possession of the ball and would contribute well in partnering with Kalas.

Could it happen?: Within a defence that already boasts the likes of Kalas, Sigurdsson, Madl & Ream, would one of the current crop of players need to depart to see the like for like replacement?

Nouha Dicko

Fulham have reportedly been linked with a January swoop for Wolves striker Nouha Dicko, according to hitc.com.

Fulham scouts have been monitoring the situation of the Mali international, who has yet to score since returning from a year long absence due to a cruciate knee ligament injury.

The 24 year old forward is an explosive attacking threat and will supply variety to Fulham's attacking presence.

Could it happen?: Jokanovic will be in desperate need of supplying options to his attacking line and with Dicko yet to find goal scoring form, he may not be the viable option to help fulfill the clubs ambitions this window.

Aiden O’Brien

Fulham have joined a handful of Championship clubs in pursuit of Millwall striker Aiden O’Brien, according to reports on The Sun's website.

The Cottagers have sent their scouting team down to Millwall's New Den stadium to monitor the former U21 Republic of Ireland international.

O’Brien has netted 10 times in 27 appearances so far this season and could contribute to the goal scoring responsibility.

Could it happen? As aforementioned, O’Brien is currently being monitored by several Championship clubs and could lead to a club having to pay premium rates to acquire the Millwall man, however with Fulham in desperate need of cover in the forward line could see them pull out all the stops to sign him.


Rumoured Departures

Cauley Woodrow

Fulham are set to loan out Cauley Woodrow, if reports by Getwestlondon.co.uk are to be believed.

Reports suggest that the club are not looking to sell the U21 England international, however the 22 year old striker will be only depart the club permanently if a big fee is agreed.

Could it happen?: As of late Woodrow has been starved of match time. During the Derby match, when Martin was unavailable to play against his parental club, neither of the fringe players, Woodrow or Matt Smith made a contribution, instead with the Serbian opting to play winger Ayité through the centre and later giving 19 year old Stephen Humphrys his senior debut within the final minutes of the game.

A brief spell away from the club would be pivotal in the youngsters progression and possibly his only chance in securing a future at Craven Cottage.

The club insists it will only be making like for like changes in January, which would ultimately see Woodrow seeking playing time elsewhere, to allow leeway for new arrivals to bolster the attacking line.
