Roma forward Stefano Okaka would relish the chance to play again in England, according to the player's agent.

The 20-year-old spent six months on loan at Fulham last season after failing to earn a starting place at Roma.

"I have not been contacted by any particular club," said Okaka's agent Domenico Scopellitti to

"Certainly, if Roma decide to transfer him, Stefano would like to repeat the experience in England or go to play in Scotland. Both tournaments are better suited for his characteristics."

Okaka scored two goals in 11 appearances for the Cottagers last season before returning to the Eternal City this summer.

With Roma coach Claudio Ranieri having the likes of Francesco Totti, Mirko Vucinic and Julio Baptista as well as new signing Adriano in his roster, Okaka is set to fall down the pecking order.

"I believe the player needs to be handed the chance to play more, something which at Roma is not possible," said Scopellitti.

"Hence, another experience like that of Fulham would be good for him.

"I'm making moves in that transfer market.

"He would also do very well in a small team in the Premier League because it would see him play an entire season in one of the most beautiful and difficult tournaments in the world."

The Italian striker is under contract with Roma for another two seasons.
