Croatian striker Mladen Petric looks set to leave Fulham this summer, with his likely destination to be move back to Switzerland.
Petric started particularly well at Fulham, scoring a brace on the opening day victory over Norwich, which finished 5-0 to the Cottagers.
Petric has featured heavily in Martin Jol's team this season and has impressed in his first season playing in England. Petric made 20 appearances, scoring 5 goals as well. Petric played under Jol during his time at Hamburg, and the pair have linked up to good effect again this season.
Petric's career began in Switzerland with FC Baden, and after a season, Petric moved to FC Grasshopper where he had arguably the best spell of his career. He spent five years there, making over 110 appearances and scoring 30 goals.
Petric then transferred to FC Basel, where he went on to make 72 appearances, scoring 38 goals. Because of his form in his native homeland, Petric began to attract attention from Europe, and since his playing days in Switzerland, Petric has played for Borussia Dortmund, Hamburg and then Fulham.
Speaking to Swiss newspaper Blick, Petric said: "It is true, I have some offers from Swiss clubs. My main goal at this moment in time is to find a club where I will be able to play regularly."
But despite Petric's interest in a move back to Switzerland, FC Zurich president Dragan Rapic is unsure whether they or any other Swiss club could afford a deal for the Croatian.
"We didn't talk much about Mladen, but we know he is free to leave Fulham so he is an interesting player. But I don't know if we are able to offer him a contract that would be good enough for him," Rapic admitted to Swiss journalists.
