Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell is attracting interest from both Stoke City and West Ham according to the Daily Mail.
The former Reading, Arsenal and Chelsea player, has had a consistent season at Craven Cottage but was unable to keep the west London club from being relegated, following a 13-year stay in England's top flight.
With his current contract set to end in the summer, the midfielder is already being linked with Premier League clubs, while manager Felix Magath has ordered under-performing players to take part in extra training sessions as he looks to guide fulham back to the top flight at the first time of trying.
Stoke manager, Mark Hughes, who managed Sidwell during his season as Fulham boss in 2010-2011 wasted no time in identifying the former England under-21 player as a target, as he looks to build on the Potters' ninth-place finish - the club's best since 1975.
The ginger-haired midfielder, who struck seven times in the league and scored in Fulham's FA Cup third-round replay against Norwich, who were also relegated, may not be the only high profile player to leave Fulham this summer. Loanees Lewis Holtby and Daren Bent will return to their parent clubs Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa respectively, while £12m flop Kostas Mitroglou has been linked with a move to Italy.
