Fulham have approached Real Madrid in an attempt to sign 20-year-old left-back Theo Hernandez on loan, according to reports.
Hernandez made 13 league appearances for Los Blancos last season after moving across the capital from Atletico Madrid in the summer.
Fulham have already pulled off some impressive deals this summer, bringing the likes of Jean-Michael Seri and Andre Schurrle to Craven Cottage.
The Whites played Southampton’s Matt Targett at left-back in the second-half of last season and remain interested in signing him permanently.
However, with Saints unwilling to sell and little time remaining before the window shuts, they have turned their attention elsewhere.
