Roma goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg could complete a move to Fulham by the end of Tuesday.
The Premiership club are interested in the Dutch international who is expected to leave the Stadio Olimpico this summer.
Fulham, who initially tried to sign the 30-year-old during the January transfer market, will cost around €3.5m.
The Gazzetta dello Sport claims that the deal could be done and dusted within the next 48 hours.

West Ham United are poised to sign Real Betis goalkeeper Adrian San Miguel, according to AS.
It is understood that the 26-year-old, whose contract with Los Beticos runs out on June 30, has already travelled to London and will sign a three-year deal with the Premier League club.
Adrian is a product of hometown club Betis’ youth academy and spent his first five senior seasons with the reserves, four of those in Segunda B, and was promoted to the first team squad in 2011 as third choice whilst continuing to appear for the B team.
He made his La Liga debut last September in a 4-0 away defeat at Malaga, replacing outfield player Salvador Agra after goalkeeper Casto had been sent off in the early minutes.
It is believed Adrian’s contract with the London outfit is worth twice what Betis were prepared to offer.
Real Madrid are seriously considering a bid for Barcelona midfielder Thiago Alcantara, reports RAC1.
According to the Catalan radio station the 22-year-old’s father, former Brazilian international Mazinho, has already given the green light for an intermediary to begin talks with Los Blancos with a view to a proposed move this summer.
Thiago has a rescission clause of €18m in his contract and Madrid are keen to cash in on what they see as a bargain price for a player who made his first appearance for the Spanish national side in a friendly against Italy in August 2011.
However, a number of other top European clubs are believed to be monitoring Thiago’s situation at the Camp Nou, with Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal all having expressed an interest recently.
Cesc Fabregas will hold talks with Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova over his future, according to Mundo Deportivo.
The midfielder wants to know if he is definitely in Vilanova’s plans for next season before he finally rejects offers from Manchester United, Manchester City and Arsenal to return to the Premier League next season.
The 26-year-old returned to Barca, where he spent his formative years, from Arsenal in August 2011, but after a bright start some inconsistent form last term has led to some speculation that La Blaugrana may be willing to let him leave.
Fabregas’ agent, Darren Dein, has told any prospective suitors they must hang fire for at least the time being while the player finds out if he still has a major role to play at the Camp Nou, having missed out in some of the most important games last year.
Catalan-born Fabregas is keen to continue his career at Barca, but if he feels he could be consigned to being a bit-part player in Vilanova’s squad then he would be open to plying his trade in England again.
Valencia midfielder Tino Costa has reached an agreement to join Spartak Moscow, Cadena COPE has announced.
Talks between the clubs are understood to be at an advanced stage with the fee for the Argentine international believed to be around €7m.
Costa [pictured, left] is due to undergo a medical with the Russian club on Monday and bring to an end his three seasons at Mestalla, having joined from Montpellier for €6.5m in July 2010 on four-year contract.
The 28-year-old, who made 84 La Liga appearances for Los Che and scored 10 goals, was on the verge of signing for Spartak before the start of last season when they were coached by former Valencia boss Unai Emery, now in charge at Sevilla.
It is reported that Costa will pen a four-year deal at the Luznikh Stadium.
Athletic Bilbao are chasing Granada central midfielder Mikel Rico for a second time, according to Marca.
Los Leones tried to sign the Basque-born player before the start of last season and will again try to lure him back north if the Andalusian outfit is prepared to do business this time around.
Bilbao President Josu Urrutia will be entering his third campaign in the role and has promised fans more signings than in previous years as the club gets ready to begin life in their new stadium.
Rico, 28, has a contract at Los Carmenes until June 2015 that includes a release clause of €11m, a price Athletic consider way too high. Consequently, they will begin negotiations with Granada President Quique Pina in order to seek a reduction on the fee, given the player has already indicated his willingness to agree to the move
