The Sun are reporting that Fulham are keeping tabs on Dijon defender Abdoulaye Bamba.

Martin Jol is in the market for a right back when the transfer window reopens in January after Zdenek Grygera was ruled out for six months after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligament against Tottenham last month. Bamba was a highly-rated youth footballer in Italy after moving from his native Ivory Coast when he was a young boy. Bamba spent nearly a decade with Italian giants Juventus but moved to Dijon when he signed his first professional contract – a two-year deal with the French side.

Bamba, 21, has made 23 appearances for Dijon after helping the Reds reach the top flight after gaining their first promotion ever in the 2010-11 season. The Sun believes a bid of around £200,000 would be enough to bring the youngster to the Premier League.
