Fulham are eyeing a move for Sporting Lisbon winger Jovane Cabral.

The Cottagers are keen on loan deal with a view-to-buy for the 20-year-old, as per a report by Sport Witness.

Fulham are preparing for life back in the Championship next season following their relegation from the Premier League. Their boss, Scott Parker, is in the hunt for some new signings this summer as he looks to put his own stamp on the Craven Cottage club.

Cabral, who is a Cape Verde international, would offer the Whites another option out wide and more depth in the attacking department.

The youngster started his career in his native country with Grémio Nhagar before joining Sporting four years ago. He initially broke into their B team and made 34 appearances for them.

Cabral then became part of Sporting’s first-team fold and was handed a handful of appearances in the last campaign.

A loan move to Fulham could be appealing to both Cabral and Sporting as it would give him a chance to get some regular first-team football under his belt. However, there could be reservations over the option to buy as Sporting may see him as one for the future there.
