The Dutchman will have to pay £2 million to sign the Cameroon international from Ajax and is weighing up his options as he would prefer a more creative midfielderMartin Jol has revealed he is torn between bringing Eyong Enoh back to Fulham or reinvesting in a different central midfielder.
The Dutchman has identified the middle of the park as the area for reinvestment after he ended last season with only one central midfielder on a long-term contract.

“If you want big stars in that position (centre midfield) you have to pay a lot of money," Jol told the Fulham Chronicle.
“That is why you have to gamble and take players when they are bad sometimes.
“He [Enoh] was bad at Ajax, and they have [Christian] Poulsen in his position – a Danish international.
“When I got him, you hope that he will be good. And he has proved it. We tried to get an option to sign him permanently - and we have one.
“But we have always had link up players in that position. Danny Murphy was not a defensive player – he was a playmaker. I had Michael Carrick at Spurs, he was a playmaker.
“Enoh is different and we have to make a decision. I can’t tell you now.”
