Fulham have now entered the race to sign Swedish striker Marcus Berg from Dutch club Groningen.
Reports on Wednesday suggested that the 22-year-old was keen on a move to Hamburg but it now seems Cottagers manager Roy Hodgson has revealed his interest in the player.
The striker hit the headlines after scoring an impressive seven goals in this summer’s Under 21 European Championship.
Hamburg were believed to have agreed a fee of around €10million for Berg, but Groningen manager Henk Veldmate has confirmed that Fulham have entered the face to sign the forward.
“Those two clubs Fulham and Hamburg are the only ones left who are now in conversation with us when it comes to Marcus Berg,” he told The Sun.
“We have had some meetings with both clubs. We will see what happens in the next couple of days.
“But I can say both these clubs have been concrete in their interest and we know Marcus wants to leave us for a bigger club.”
