Fulham are pondering a summer swoop for legendary striker Raul, according to reports in Spain.

The former Real Madrid star wants a fresh challenge after a successful career in Spain and Germany.

The 34-year-old will play his last game in the Bundesliga on Saturday after scoring 40 goals in 98 games in two seasons at Schalke.

Raul has indicated he will not move to a major European league and Qatar appears to be his likely destination but that has not prevented Fulham and Newcastle from making contact with his representatives.
