Swansea City and Fulham will battle it out for the signature of French striker David Trezeguet.

The 33-year-old is a free-agent following his departure from Spanish side Hercules, who were relegated from la Liga last season.

The ex-France international will snub a move to Ligue 1 for a chance to prove himself in the Premier League.

He played 71 times for his national team, winning the World Cup and European Championships in 1998 and 2000 respectively, scoring 34 goals.

Trezeguet was due to sign for Napoli last month but the move broke down allowing Swansea and Fulham to make their move.

Swans boss Brendan Rogers wants a big-name at the club to act as a statement of intent, and narrowly missed out on the chance of bringing Marcos Senna to the Liberty Stadium.

Fulham manager Martin Jol is a big fan of Trezeguet and wants him to act as cover for Bobby Zamora, who is a target for Tottenham.

But both Premier League sides could face competition from SPL giants Rangers for Trezeguet’s signature, who missed out on Kenny Miller to Cardiff.

The Scottish side are also after Dundee United striker David Goowillie but he looks to be joining Blackburn.
