Stylish midfielder wanted on loan.
Fulham are hoping to tie up a loan deal for Marseille midfielder Morgan Amalfitano this summer, the Daily Mail understands.
The 28-year-old has struggled to settle in the south of France since joining the club from Lorient in 2011 and is said to be keen on seeking a move away. He currently has two years left on his current deal and Fulham boss Martin Jol is keen to bring him in on loan for a season before trying to seal his permanent signature for a cut price deal next year.
The west London club’s head scout Barry Simmonds had alerted the side to Amalfitano when he left Lorient and tried to broker a deal then, but the player was keen on testing himself in the Champions League and opted for Marseille instead.
He is reported to be keen on a move to England, where his brother, Romain, plays for Newcastle.
Amalfitano began his career with minnows Sedan in 2003 who he went on to make over 120 appearance for before joining Lorient in 2008. He may not be enjoying his time with Marseille but it hasn’t stopped him from picking up a Trophee des Champions title as well as a Coupe de la Ligue trophy too.
