Stekelenburg moved to Roma from Ajax in the summer of 2011 but has struggled to command a first-team place in recent months.

He has fallen behind Mauro Goicoechea in the pecking order at the Stadio Olimpico, prompting him to consider a move elsewhere.

Fulham boss Martin Jol worked with Stekelenburg during his time as Ajax coach in 2009 and has reportedly been monitoring his situation in Italy.

The 30-year-old could be seen as a long-term replacement for current Cottagers No.1 Mark Schwarzer, who turns 41 later this year.

Stekelenburg's agent, Rob Jansen, confirmed that the Dutch star could be making a move to Craven Cottage ahead of the transfer deadline.

"We work very hard to get a deal," Jansen told De Telegraaf.

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
