Fulham manager Martin Jol will look to raid his old club Ajax for the signing of South African midfielder Thulani Serero in January.
The Dutchman is under pressure at Craven Cottage after a poor start to the season, and SportsDirect News reported that he was hoping to strengthen his squad at the next opportunity.
Serero, 23, is considered a promising prospect at Ajax, though he has not managed to establish himself as a first-team regular since joining the club in 2011, and could be tempted by a switch to the Premier League.
With Fulham performing so badly at the moment, it remains to be seen if Jol will still be in the job by the turn of the year, but he remains committed to his role and is already working on targets to improve his side's chances of staying up.
Serero is an attack-minded midfielder, who has scored three goals in 12 appearances for Ajax this season, and who could be available for around £5million.
