Fulham are considering tabling a £3m offer for Swansea City full-back Neil Taylor, according to the Daily Mail.

Rene Meulensteen is keen to add a left back to his squad by the close of the January transfer window, having been unconvinced by the displays of John Arne Riise and Kieran Richardson since replacing Martin Jol at Craven Cottage. Riise, who had been offered the opportunity to leave Fulham by Jol in the summer, was afforded a second chance by the new manager but Meulensteen appears keen to strengthen his options with Matthew Briggs still struggling to recover from a hernia operation.

Taylor had an outstanding first season in the top flight with Swansea, but the emergence of Ben Davies has limited his first-team opportunities at the Liberty Stadium. The 24 year-old, who has made 87 appearances for the club since signing on a free transfer from Wrexham in June 2010, has won fourteen caps for Wales and represented Great Britain at the London Olympics. Meulensteen has also been linked with loan moves for Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand and Sporting Lisbon’s Marcos Rojo.
