Fulham are leading the chase to sign Bayern Munich striker Ivica Olic.
Olic, 32, has struggled to command a regular first-team place with the German giants this season and is keen to get his career back on track.
Fulham boss Martin Jol is desperate to strengthen his squad in January and help his side turn their season around following a thumping 5-0 home defeat against Manchester United on Wednesday night.
Reports continue to suggest there is a rift between Jol and star forward Bobby Zamora and the Fulham boss is keen to bolster his forward line.
Olic has a wealth of experience and would relish the chance to showcase his talents in the Premier League.


Though Ivica Olic is clearly in the autumn of his career the Croatian international is still a sprightly hugely experienced campaigner who can do a good job for the Craven Cottage side as Martin Jol looks to bring in further attacking options to help keep his West London side clear of the relegation zone.

Fulham have managed just 18 goals in 17 games and with talk of a possible falling out between Jol and Bobby Zamora there is all the more need to invest in a new striker. Olic would only cost the Premier League side around £5m and whilst Olic is no longer a regular at the Allianz Arena he has proved an effective attacking tool when called upon.

The club are also struggling to persuade Andy Johnson to put pen to paper on a new deal and the pint sized striker may well be sold in January to prevent losing the former England man for nothing in the summer.

Olic has won league titles in three countries and just two years ago was a hugely influential player at his Bavarian club, notching up 19 goals in his debut season and helping Bayern Munich to a domestic double and the Champions League final.
