Italian source CalcioMercato report that Fulham are looking to land free agent Owen Haregreaves as Craven Cottage boss Martin Jol looks to strengthen his midfield.

The West London side lost the services of a number of midfielders over the summer and Jol has publicly stated his intention to shop for out of contract players to help beef up the numbers.

The 31 year old former England man has suffered with injuries for the best part of five years and saw his Man United career ruined by recurring tendinitis concerns and on completion of his Old Trafford deal moved to neighbours Man City and though relatively unscathed by these issues failed to persuade Roberto Mancini to offer him much in the way of first team action.

A move to Fulham could help rejuvenate a career that had looked almost over. Jol may feel the calculated risk of offering a player of Hargreaves undoubted ability a short term contract is one worth considering.
