Fulham boss Mark Hughes has confirmed the club are monitoring Espanyol's highly-rated Argentine forward Pablo Osvaldo.
Osvaldo, 25, has scored 11 league goals this season and scouts have been flocking to Espanyol's Cornella-El Prat stadium to watch the striker in action.
Fulham, Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa and Sevilla have all been linked with Osvaldo, who completed a permanent move to Espanyol in the summer, having impressed during a loan spell from Bologna.
"We have followed the boy (Osvaldo) for a long time now and I think everyone is aware of this and we are not going to hide it," Hughes said in Catalan newspaper Sport.
"I don't want to say anything else about the topic because he belongs to another club.
"He is a very good player and we will see how this matter turns out."
Espanyol have reportedly placed a €12million price tag on Osvaldo's head to deter interested parties.
