Fulham are one of a number of English clubs keeping a close eye on Portuguese goalkeeper Eduardo Carvalho.

Carvalho, 29, is currently on loan at Benfica from Genoa having lost his place in the national team. He has reportedly targeted a move to England as a means of resurrecting his international career. After he impressed at the World Cup, Carvalho was close to joining Arsenal when Manuel Almunia looked set to leave the Gunners but Arsene Wenger elected against signing a new goalkeeper after the blossoming of Wojciech Szczesny.

A host of English clubs are keen on taking a closer look at Carvalho, who has issued a ‘come and get me plea’ to a number of Premier League sides, according to talkSPORT. Neil Warnock wants cover for first-choice goalkeeper Paddy Kenny at QPR whilst West Brom are also interested as there are doubts over Ben Foster’s long-term future at the Hawthorns. The report speculates that Martin Jol could make a move for the Portuguese keeper as back-up for Mark Schwarzer, although David Stockdale has been earmarked as the Australian’s long-term replacement at Craven Cottage.
