Fulham are working hard to try and bring in Holland goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg, according to Dutch daily De Telegraaf.

Stekelenburg is out of favour in the Italian capital under Giallorossi coach Zdenek Zeman and Fulham would like to sign him on loan for the rest of the season.

It is a move the shot-stopper may be keen on given that his relationship with Zeman is strained.

However, with Zeman himself under pressure and former France coach Laurent Blanc mooted as being lined up as his replacement, Stekelenburg could still decide to stay.


He will though have to make his decision quickly if Fulham can thrash out an agreement with Roma.

The deal, if it happens, looks likely to be a loan with an option for Fulham to buy if Stekelenburg can impress.

Stekelenburg joined Roma from Dutch giants Ajax.
