Fulham are mulling a potential move for Bayer Leverkusen central defender Jonathan Tah as they look to add defensive reinforcements before the close of the summer transfer window.

Scott Parker’s side were beaten 3-0 by Arsenal on the opening day of the new season – and the deficiencies in the centre of the Fulham defence were all too apparent. Tah, a German international, has been historically linked with Arsenal and a number of leading Premier League clubs but Leicester are known to have been interested earlier this summer. The Telegraph suggests that Foxes boss Brandon Rodgers has identified Wesley Fofana as his main target, which leaves Fulham free to chase the 24 year-old.

The Telegraph report suggests that Tah, who has spent five seasons with Leverkusen, might be available this summer if Fulham were to come in with an attractive offer. He has made more than a hundred first-team appearances for Leverkusen having come through the Hamburg youth academy and has won ten senior caps for Germany.
