The Moroccan international joined Rennes on a season-long loan in July and they are keen to keep him on a permanent basis.
Rennes are believed to have offered Ouaddou a three-year deal, but the giant defender is keeping his options open as a number of clubs have expressed interest in his services.
Spanish side Espanyol, Italians Chievo and a mystery French side are all reported to be monitoring Ouaddou's situation at Rennes.
Fulham are unlikely to stand in his way if they receive a suitable offer, as he does not figure in Chris Coleman's long-term plans.
Ouaddou is set to wait until the end of the season before making a decision on his future and he is believed to favour staying in France.
Meanwhile, Rennes have been linked with a move for Montpellier winger Fode Mansare.
Mansare is set to leave Montpellier if they suffer relegation from Le Championnat, with the club willing to cash-in on a number of their stars to ease their financial problems.
