Fulham are set to secure the signature of winger Bakary Sako who is set to leave Wolves following their relegation to League One.
The French-born player of Malian descent is one of several wide players who have been linked with a move to Craven Cottage this summer.
However, despite recent reports that Ipswich Town's transfer-listed winger Jay Emmanuel-Thomas is on Cottagers' boss Martin Jol's wanted list, it now looks like Sako will be heading to west London in a reported £4.5million deal.
Sako has impressed for Wolves since joining from St Etienne last summer with 10 goals and 11 assists for the Black Country outfit, who have suffered back-to-back relegations.
As a result it looks like the player, whose season ended prematurely in March because of a hamstring tear, will be leaving and his Wolves team-mate Georg Margreitter revealed that Fulham is to be his destination when speaking to an Austrian newspaper.
He said: "Bakary now goes for a few million to Fulham. Not bad for a loser."
