Fulham close in on 8m Standard Liege striker Dieumerci Mbokani

Fulham are closing in on the £8million signing of striker Dieumerci Mbokani after finalising the free transfer signing of Philippe Senderos from Arsenal. The Standar Liege striker Dieumerci Mbokani has urged the west London outfit to finalise his transfer despite late interest from West Ham and Birmingham. Mbokani said: 'I know Fulham are interested, and they are an excellent solution for me. I hope Standard can reach agreement. If a transfer is okay for Standard, it is okay for me too - and I expect the matter to be sorted out soon.' All smiles: Fulham are locked in talks to complete an £8m deal for Standard Liege striker Dieumerci Mbokani Fulham took the opportunity to hold talks with Standard Liege bosses in London on Tuesday over Mbokani. The 24-year old Congo international has also been watched by Everton but looks bound for Craven Cottage. Standard are resigned to losing him, after he made it plain he wanted a move to the Barclays Premier League or Bundesliga, and despatched directors Luciano D'Onofrio and Pierre Francoise to London to discuss terms. Despite being tipped to replace Rafa Benitez, Fulham manager Roy Hodgson marked his return from holiday by formulating transfer plans with chief executive Alistair Mackintosh. Done deal: Former Arsenal defender Philippe Senderos has signed a three-year contract at Craven Cottage Senderos, 25, agreed a three-year deal after being given a two-day break from international duty with Switzerland.  Fulham swoop to sign Arsenal defender Senderos on free transferIt's up to Roy: Dempsey says Hodgson must go with his heart over LiverpoolWe'll be the Fulham of the World Cup, claims USA forward Clint DemspeyFULHAM FC
