FULHAM are in talks to sign Roma star Justin Kluivert, according to reports.
The winger, 23, has been deemed surplus to requirements by Jose Mourinho after spending the last two years out on loan.
Kluivert spent a season at RB Leipzig before joining Nice last year where he scored just four goals in 27 league games.
But Fulham like the look of the Dutchman and are set to hold talks with Roma officials who have flown over from Italy, report The Times.
Kluivert was also left out of Roma's pre-season training camp in Portugal – a big hint that his future lies elsewhere.
Roma could reportedly demand £8million to let Kluivert leave with general manager Tiago Pinto arriving in London to negotiate a fee.
