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.

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
