FULHAM will complete the signing of striker Manor Solomon from Shakthar Donetsk.
All sides are hoping the £7million deal for the 22-year-old is nearing completion as Cottagers boss Marco Silva looks to prepare for life in the Premier League.
Silva has lost star man Fabio Carvalho after the ace agreed a move to Liverpool before the end of the season, meaning the west Londoners needed to add even more firepower after their promotion to the top flight.
And former Everton and Watford boss Silva is hoping Israel international Solomon will do just that.
Solomon had scored four goals and provided two assists last season before Ukrainian football ground to a halt following Russia’s invasion of the country.
The winger has six international goals and eight assists in 31 games for Israel.
Silva is also confident of hijacking Wolves’ move for Sporting Lisbon midfielder Joao Palhinha.
The 26-year-old Portuguese midfielder appeared to have joined Molinuex as a replacement for Ruben Neves but with his future still unclear, Fulham have swooped in.
The league winners had been linked with a move for Crystal Palace’s Luka Milivojevic but now look like the Serb could upgrade at Palhinha.
Additionally, Fulham are keen to bring Liverpool’s Neco Williams back permanently after his loan spell in west London last season.

The Cottagers are also ‘trying hard’ to sign Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno, the German’s agent has confirmed.
The Cottagers had been eyeing a deal for former goalkeeper Alphonse Areola, although the Frenchman will agree a permanent deal with London rivals West Ham after his loan spell last season.
When asked about a change for Leno, Koukoutrigas told Bild: “Fulham is trying very hard to get Bernd.”
