Fulham are believed to be eyeing a summer swoop for Ipswich Town midfielder Jay Emmanuel-Thomas.
The former Arsenal youngster has caught the attention of Cottagers boss Martin Jol after an impressive campaign with the Tractor Boys in the Championship.
Jol is keen to add extra bodies after a challenging first season in charge at Craven Cottage juggling a small squad between the demands of the Premier League and Europa League duty.
The 21-year-old is a product of the Gunners' youth success and made one appearance for Arsene Wenger's side in the top-flight before moving on, although he did see action for them in the cup competitions.
He also previously had loan spells with Doncaster Rovers, Blackpool and Cardiff before being sold to Ipswich for £1.5m.
The former England youth international has made 41 appearances for Paul Jewell's men this term, scoring six goals and providing three assists along the way.
It's thought Ipswich would only be prepared to sell him if they could double their money, so Fulham will be expected to stump up at least £3m to get him.
