Fulham are interested in signing PSG striker Guillaume Hoarau, according to reports in the French press this morning.
The 27 year-old is expected to leave Paris Saint-Germain next month as the club are looking to bring in the likes of Alexandre Pato or Carlos Tevez. Hoarau, who has just recovered from a shoulder injury, has struggled to get any playing time for PSG this season, with Kevin Gameiro preferred up front. Hoarau has made just four appearances in Ligue 1 this term, scoring one goal.
The French club are reportedly preparing to announce former Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager this afternoon and it is unlikely that Hoarau will have a future at the club. Martin Jol is keen to supplement his striking options, especially as Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora may leave Fulham during the transfer window. At 6ft 3in, the French striker could be a plausible replacement for Zamora.
Hoarau, who has won five caps for France, began his career in his native Reunion before moving to Le Havre in 2004. He scored 33 goals in 81 appearances for Le club doyen before signing for PSG in a deal worth €500,000. He had a superb first season with the Parisian giants, scoring 17 league goals in 33 starts, but has since struggled to replicate that form. He has currently managed 33 goals in 91 games for PSG.
