Fuham, fresh from their promotion back to the Premier League, are on a mission to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.

They are close to sealing a transfer for Sporting CP’s João Palhinha, and now it’s the right-back position being worked on.

The news comes from TuttoMercatoWeb in Italy, who claim Fulham have shown a ‘strong interest’ in Switzerland international Kevin Mbabu.

In fact, they’ve gone further than just declare their desire to sign him, as the website add the Cottagers have ‘presented an offer to Wolfsburg to take the right-back to London’.

The amount put forward by Fulham isn’t revealed, but considering the 27-year-old only has one year left on his contract with the German side, he shouldn’t be someone they will have to break the bank for.

Mbabu made 31 appearances in all competitions for Wolfsburg last season, picking up one assist in a 59 minute display in the DFB-Pokal win against Preußen Münster.

However, that result was made void when the Bundesliga club lost their place in the cup after using too many substitutes during the game.
