Fulham are preparing a double bid for FC Twente stars Nacer Chadli and Bryan Ruiz.

The Craven Cottage club have formally lodged a bid for winger Chadli but have been told to double their £4.37million offer by Twente chairman Joop Munsterman.

The 21-year-old has impressed for the Eredivisie side since joining from AGOVV last summer and scored in both recent Champions League clashes with Tottenham.

The Belgium international has been attracting interest from across Europe with Fulham not being the first team to have a bid rejected.

Cottagers boss Martin Jol is also in the market for a striker and has inquired about Spurs target Ruiz.

The Costa Rica international has a £13.75million release clause but Fulham were hoping to compromise over a fee.

Munsterman confirmed the interest in the 25-year-old but he does not expect the deal to get very far.

“The offer for Chadli we consider a half bid, “he told Voetbal International. “And Bryan did not even want to join Fulham.”

Meanwhile, Leeds United winger Max Gradel has confirmed the Cottagers interest in signing him.

“Are Fulham interested in buying me? Yes,” he told the Daily Mail. “I know West Ham are interested in buying me, too.”
