Fulham are believed to be attempting to lure Amdy Faye from Portsmouth.

Chris Coleman has been impressed with the impact made by the leggy midfielder at Fratton Park following his move last year from Auxerre.

The 27-year-old from Senegal could make a surprise switch to the capital as French sources claim contact has already been made by The Cottagers.

After recovering from a knee injury that kept him out for action for a long spell last term, Faye displayed plenty of energy and tackling ability for the South Coast side and was even likened to Patrick Vieira in terms of his style.

Coleman is plotting his summer spending and is expected to attempt to sign Faye during the close season.

Faye joined Premiership newcomers Portsmouth in August 2003 for an undisclosed fee - thought to be in the region of £1.5m - from French side Auxerre.

Pompey beat Middlesbrough, Manchester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers to his signature.

The Senegal international, part of his country's squad at both the African Nations' Cup and the World Cup in 2002, is described as an intelligent footballer with a good range of passing.

Faye is a product of the Monaco youth academy and moved to Auxerre in 1998 after a spell with Frejus, a club based on France's Mediterranean coast.
