Mexico international Aldo de Nigris is reportedly the target of English Premier League club Fulham.

Mirror Football
has claimed that the London club's manager, Martin Jol, has already been in contact with De Nigris' employers Monterrey.

The forward is currently on international duty with Mexico in the Copa America but it is believed that he impressed the ex-Tottenham Hotspur boss while playing a significant role in El Tri's victorious Gold Cup campaign.

It will reportedly take €3.5 million (£3.1m) for the Cottagers to prise the CONCACAF Champions League winner away from his current club but Jol is willing to spend the money.

Jol is clearly seeking to bolster his attacking options at Craven Cottage, with Goal.com exclusively revealing earlier today that Fulham are also lining up Tottenham's Robbie Keane as a replacement for Andy Johnson, who is expected to leave. Keane, the Republic of Ireland's record goalscorer, is out of favour at White Hart Lane and was loaned to West Ham last season, but Jol is an admirer following their time together when the Dutchman was managing Spurs.

And he may be successful with his reported interest in De Nigris, as the striker has previously revealed his desire to one day play in Europe and Fulham may serve as his chance to realise that dream.

De Nigris netted four times in this year's Gold Cup, with his finest moment coming against Honduras as he was finally able to break them down in the first half of extra-time by netting the opener on the way to a 2-0 victory for Luis Fernando Tena's men.
