Fulham have been linked with a move for Central Coast Mariners midfielder Tom Rogic but face strong competition from Celtic.
The Australian international has impressed in the A-League and seems set to secure a move to Europe in the near future.
Rogic is currently on trial with Celtic and the 20-year-old could even feature in the SPL side's friendly against Steaua Bucharest on Tuesday, according to Bhoys assistant manager Johan Mjallby.
Mjallby appears confident that Celtic can secure a deal for the highly-rated attacking midfielder, but reports in Australia claim Fulham will rival them for Rogic's services.
"There is no point in having him here if we can't sign him right now," Mjallby told the Daily Record.
"If he is good enough, why not go for it straight away?
"I don't know the figures or his contract situation but he could be a gem.
"I've heard very good reports and the sooner we see him the better."
The Mariners are currently the A-League leaders but are unlikely to stand in Rogic's way if a concrete offer is received from a European side.
Fulham boss Martin Jol is believed to be ready to make a move if Celtic fail in their bid to sign the Australian, while Premier League rivals Reading have also been credited with an interest.
