Fulham have revived their interest in Spezia striker M’Bala Nzola, according to reports from Italy this afternoon.

The Whites made a concerted effort to sign the Angolan international in January as they were battling to stay in the Premier League but saw two bids rejected by the Italian side. Nzola, who had fired Spezia to the Italian top flight with seven goals in 21 games, continued his scoring streak in Serie A last term – netting eleven goals in 25 league appearances as the Little Eagles comfortably avoided relegation.

Fulham have revived their interest in the French-born forward as they seek to add additional striking options to Marco Silva’s squad alongside Aleksandar Mitrovic. Aboubakar Kamara is about to complete a permanent move to Aris and Rodrigo Muniz’s imminent arrival from Flamengo will be delayed by the Brazilian youngster’s quarantine requirements. Fulham have contacted Spezia to ascertain if a deal would be possible before the end of the transfer window, but they are not the 24 year-old’s only suitors. Nzola has attracted interest from Fiorentina as well as clubs in Portugal and Turkey, whilst Fulham’s Championship rivals West Bromwich Albion are also hopeful of enticing the 6’1” forward to England.
