Tore Andre Flo has again been linked with a move away from Rangers - with Premiership side Fulham touted as the latest destination.

The big Norwegian striker has found the net but not much praise since his big-money move north from Chelsea to Ibrox. And after rumours of his departure to Germany last week, the latest link indicates that he could be in line for a return ticket back to London, with Frenchman Jean Tigana reportedly interested in a move for the player to add to his attacking options.

Millionaire Mohammed al Fayed has bankrolled the Craven Cottage team's rise through the ranks, and he is unlikely to shy away from yet more big-money moves, although Fulham or any other interested party are highly unlikely to want to want to give Rangers anything like the £12million they splashed out on the player to break the Scottish transfer record last year.

Rangers insist that Flo is going nowhere, but it does appear that he is attracting increasing interest, with the Fulham link surfacing as Tigana confirmed that he is in the market for a new forward.

Flo is the SPL's top scorer, and Tigana said: "We are lacking a cutting edge upfront at the moment. I think we need new blood, we're going to keep our eyes open, but we have one or two names in mind."

It does appear that Flo is one of the first names on most people's lips as soon as a team is linked with a new striker - but new Rangers boss Alex McLeish is unlikely to want to part with one of his biggest goal threats unless he has assurances that he will be able to use transfer funds to mould his own team at Ibrox.
