Fulham look to Jan Koller as a giant killer

With 15 points from 21 Premier League matches, Fulham are one from bottom and two points off the safety zone. This is not the first time that the Londoners have been battling for survival in top-flight English football and they have to pull out a giant miracle to stave off relegation. According to The Sun, to accomplish that, new manager Roy Hodgson has decided to drag out a giant from Europe.

The giant in question is a certain 6ft 7in Czech international striker named Jan Koller, who is currently with the French Ligue 1 side AS Monaco. Fulham have struggled for goals this season and are in desperate need of a target man to rescue their season. So far, the Cottagers have won just two matches, both at home, and have scored just 22 goals. No wonder that Hodgson has identified the Fulham attack line as the main area of trouble.

Koller is unsettled at Monaco and is reported to be looking for a move out of the municipality club. His giant stature makes him a daunting prospect for the defenders in the air and his physical strength, too, is massive. Koller had been good at Borussia Dortmund for whom he netted 59 times in 137 appearances but goals have dried up at Monaco.

Koller would be just one of the new signings. Hodgson is famous for fostering contacts with scouts across Europe and he could well use his contacts to import some players from overseas to breathe life into this insipid Fulham side that desperately requires a shake-up.
