New Fulham manager Martin Jol is reportedly interested in offering Australian international Harry Kewell another shot in English football.
The former Liverpool man is currently without a club and it would no doubt be a shock move if Jol made a move for the 32-year-old.
However, as he looks to add to the Fulham squad ahead of his first season in charge, the Dutchman is prepared to look at all options available to him in the transfer market.
Kewell hasn’t had a club since being released by Galatasary. The Turkish giants opted against handing him a new contract despite him being a popular player with the club’s fans.
This has alerted Fulham to his availability and it is thought that he would provide fellow left-winger Damien Duff with competition for a place in the side.
Having good strength in depth is crucial in the Premier League of course and Jol sees Kewell as someone who can add quality and top flight experience.
With it being a free transfer, the risks are fairly minimal too, even with the Australian’s poor record with injuries.
The Cottagers aren’t the only English club interested in Kewell’s service though. Newly promoted Queens Park Rangers are also keen on his signature and are monitoring the situation.
Perhaps the biggest hurdle for these two clubs in landing Kewell is convincing the player himself. He had concluded that his time in England was over and set his sights on a career ending spell in Australia.
The chance to play in the Premier League once more though will be tempting. It is the greatest league in the world and Kewell might fancy another go at it.
This could be a transfer rumour that lasts a few more weeks as Fulham assess their approach. Keep right here for the latest.
