Newspaper speculation, as we prepare to face Chelsea tonight, has us linked with the possible acquisition of an attacking midfielder.

Apparently, Fulham are interested in bringing the Benfica player – Nolito – to Craven Cottage.

The move, for the ex-Barcelona player, could happen in the forthcoming January transfer window and the fee could be something in the region of £5 million.

Nolito scored 11 times last season, a fine return for a midfield player, but has fallen from grace this season, thereby prompting the speculation that a move to the Premier League could well be on.

As for a potential rival for his signature, look no further than West Ham United with Sam Allardyce also rumoured to be interested in the player.
