Fulham boss Rene Meulensteen is keen to take Spanish star Sergio Canales on loan from Valencia, according to reports.
The highly-rated youngster could be sent out on a temporary deal by his club who are understood to want to put him in the shop window.
Canales, who has also been linked with a move to Everton, is a former Real Madrid player whose promising early career has somewhat stalled following a series of injuries.
The 22-year-old was once reportedly a target of Manchester United during Meulensteen's time at the club and it is thought that the Dutchman sees him as an excellent acquisition as he tries to avoid relegation.
Fulham currently sit one place and one point above the bottom three.
