Fulham are in talks to sign Stuttgart striker Pavel Pogrebnyak, Press Association Sport understands.

Martin Jol has been after a striker throughout the January transfer window and now looks set to secure the signing of the Russia international.

Fulham would not comment on any potential deal but Press Association Sport understands Pogrebnyak is on his way to west London to finalise a move.

The 28-year-old would have a medical with the Cottagers on Tuesday ahead of a move, although it is not known whether the switch would be on a loan or permanent basis.

Pogrebnyak's addition would bolster a Fulham frontline that includes Bobby Zamora and Andrew Johnson.

Both have been linked with a move away from Craven Cottage this month, with Johnson the subject of offers from Blackburn and QPR earlier in the window.
