Chris Coleman, the Fulham manager, hopes to make the PSV Eindhoven striker Mateja Kezman his next major signing if he can agree a fee with the Dutch club.

Coleman and his assistant, Steve Kean, watched the Serbian international score against Newcastle United from the penalty spot in PSV’s Uefa Cup quarter-final defeat on Wednesday, and he plans to bid for the 24 year old this summer.

Fulham have money to spend following the sale of Louis Saha to Manchester United, but are waiting for a sensible valuation on the striker. Reports from the Netherlands claim that Birmingham City have already offered £5m, but that is unlikely as Kezman only has a year left on his contract. Fulham might pay closer to £3m for Kezman, who would be interested in a move to the Premiership after a four-year spell in Eindhoven.
