Fulham have reportedly edged closer to completing a deal for Roma keeper Maarten Stekelenburg.
The Cottagers failed in a move for the former Ajax shot-stopper in the January transfer window but boss Martin Jol has retained an interest in his fellow Dutchman.
Goal.com have now reported that the two clubs are in "advanced talks" regarding a summer transfer, with the fee believed to be in the region of £5million.
If Fulham do complete a deal for Stekelenburg it will raise questions over the future of current number one Mark Schwarzer.
The Australian is out of contract in the summer but the club have offered the 40-year-old a new deal at Craven Cottage.
However, Schwarzer is desperate to travel to the 2014 World Cup with his country and will need first-team football if he is to remain the Socceroo's first-choice keeper, meaning he may decide to seek a fresh challenge when his deal expires at the end of the campaign.
David Stockdale has also been tipped to leave Fulham at the end of the season, with reports suggesting Hull City are planning a £4million swoop for the Cottagers keeper.
