Fulham are one of a number of clubs interested in signing Nigerian international full back Jamilu Collins, according to reports.

The Londoners and Newcastle United are tracking the Paderborn left back but will face stiff competition from at least five Bundesliga sides. Mainz, Schalke and Hertha Berlin have all registered their interest in the ex-Rijeka star, who shot to prominence as a consistent performer in the North Rhine-Westphalia’s back-to-back promotions.

Collins, who has won thirteen senior caps for Nigeria, is under contract at Paderborn until summer 2021 and it is thought they might entertain offers for 25 year-old this summer if he refuses to commit his long-term future to the club.
