The Cottagers want to bring in Amalfitano on-loan from Marseille.
Fulham look to secure their fourth signing of the close season by bringing Marseille midfielder Morgan Amalfitano on-loan at Craven Cottage, according to the Daily Mail.
The 28-year-old has struggled to settle at the Stade Velodrome following his switch from fellow Ligue 1 side Lorient in 2011.
Despite being contracted for another two years at the club it’s thought that Marseille will let Amalfitano move on and Cottagers scout Barry Simmonds has already been to France to watch the midfielder.
The Frenchman’s younger brother Romain is already in the Premier League playing for Newcastle United after signing from Stade de Reims last summer, although the 23-year-old has only managed five Europa League appearances for the Magpies since the move.
The elder Amalfitano brother has been much more of a stalwart for his club meanwhile, featuring 36 times for Marseille in the 2012/13 campaign and setting up six goals.
If the France international were to move to west London then he would join Fernando Amorebieta and Derek Boateng as a new signing at the club, whilst Sascha Riether has been made a permanent transfer of £1.2m following a successful loan spell.
With Amalfitano struggling to find his form at Marseille currently there is every chance that the Ligue 1 club would be open to a permanent deal for the Frenchman next year, if his spell at Fulham were to go well.
Martin Jol will be wanting to improve his side in 2013/14 after a disappointing campaign in the top English league this year, which saw the Cottagers finish 12th with 43 points – just seven off relegation.
