The Sun says that Fulham have identified Bristol City striker Nicky Maynard as a replacement for Bobby Zamora.

Maynard, who has scored 45 goals in 122 appearances for City, is out of contract in the summer and, although City have previously stated that he is not for sale, the Championship club could be tempted by a big offer. The paper reports that Martin Jol is considering tabling a £4m bid for the 25 year-old, who has scored seven goals in 22 appearances this season.

City are also actively trying to fight off Fulham’s interest in their Ghanaian winger Albert Adomah by offering him a new contract.
