As the opening of that transfer window draws nearer and nearer, the speculation as to who Rene Meulensteen will be bringing in increases by the day.

The latest offering, by the tabloid media, relates to Fulham Football Club being in the hunt to bring a Bulgarian international midfielder to Craven Cottage.

The player in question is Simeon Slachev who is on the books ofLitex Lovech and at twenty years of age is rated in the £2 million bracket, which would suggest that if he has some genuine talent then he could be a bargain acquisition.

But, as is always the case when speculation like this hits the sports pages, we do have rivals when it comes to signing the lad with it being mentioned that West Ham United and Aston Villa are also keen with Villa, probably though the Petrov connection, adjudged to be the leaders in the race for his signature, but you just never know so you!
