A clutch of English clubs, including Fulham, will have to get their skates on if they want to bring Luis Garcia back to these shores.

Press reports claim that Garcia has been told he can leave Atletico Madrid this summer and the 31-year-old forward is apparently keen on a return to England after a successful spell with Liverpool earlier in his career. Garcia has been offered to Fulham, West Brom and Blackburn Rovers while Aston Villa are rumoured to be interest.

None of the Premier League clubs have tabled a formal offer for Garcia, though, and they will be playing catch up as two Russian sides – Zenit St. Petersburg and Dinamo Moscow – are said to have been in touch with Garcia’s agent.
