Transfer news: The Fulham boss is still on the lookout for players
Fulham manager Martin Jol is looking for one or two additions to his squad before the end of the transfer window at 11pm on Friday.
FC Twente star, Douglas, is one that has been linked with the Whites and Charlie Adam has also been rumoured to be a target, albeit as a part exchange for Liverpool target Clint Dempsey.
“We never talk about names but we certainly hope to get one or two,” Jol said.
So far this summer, the Whites have signed Mladen Petric, Hugo Rodallega and Sascha Riether as Jol has revamped his squad.
FC Twente revealed last week that they were in disucussions with Fulham and Newcastle over the transfer of centre back Douglas.
The 24-year-old Brazilian-born stopper has only one year left on his contract at the Dutch side and chairman Joop Munsterman will let his star go for the right price.
“Both clubs [Fulham & Newcastle] told us they want to do business with us,” he told Voetbal International .
“We didn’t received any offers yet, but when they want to pay a fair price, Douglas may leave the club. Because otherwise he will leave Twente for free next year.”
