Fulham are plotting a surprise move for Manchester United winger Nani, according to the Metro.

The Portuguese winger has been linked with a loan switch to former side Sporting Lisbon over the last couple of days, however it now appears that Fulham are also interested in signing the 27-year-old Manchester United star.

Fulham head coach Rene Meulensteen would be willing to take the Manchester United outcast to Craven Cottage if David Moyes did make Nani available for transfer.

Meulensteen worked with Nani for a number of years during his time at the club so knows all about the Portuguese international's qualities.

The Dutchman is desperate to strengthen his squad before the window slams shut on January 31, as the west London outfit have struggled for form this season.

Nani, who signed a new five-year deal at the start of September, has not played since the beginning of December as he is currently nursing a hamstring injury.

Anderson, who was signed in 2007 along with Nani, also appears to be heading for the Old Trafford exit door as reports suggest he has agreed a deal with Serie A outfit Fiorentina.
