Fulham are reported to have lined up Javi Moreno of AC Milan for a loan switch, after losing record signing Steve Marlet for two months.

Moreno moved to Italy in the summer from Alaves, but competition with the likes of prolific Andrei Shevchenko and former Juventus star Filippo Inzaghi means that he has not yet won an extended run in the side

There were suggestions in the past that Moreno would be used as a makeweight in the deal to take Chelsea star Sam Dalla Bona to Milan, but there has been little action on this front.

27-year-old Moreno was a revelation in Alaves' run through to the final of the Uefa Cup, winning himself a call-up to the national side and proving one of the best marksman in La Liga.

Fulham boss Jean Tigana has seen record Steve Marlet taken out of action by an injury, and is keen to bolster his strike-force.

"It is a big disappointment that Steve Marlet has been injured and he will be out for at least two months," said Tigana.

"I do not feel it is necessary to buy another striker. A loan is possible - but we will not buy another striker."
