Fulham are reportedly set to make a January swoop for Inter Milan winger Antonio Candreva but face competition to sign him.
The 31-year-old is thought to be on new Cottagers’ boss Claudio Ranieri’s wanted list as he looks to make some tweaks to the expensively-assembled squad at Craven Cottage in a bid to haul them off the bottom of the Premier League and out of the relegation places.

The Italy international has struggled for regular first-team football this term and has watched the Nerazzurri’s last three Serie A matches from the substitutes’ bench.
Despite spending his entire career in Italy to date, he is now being linked with a possible move to England in order to secure some regular first-team football, with Fulham said to be leading the chase.
However, West Ham are also vying to sign Candreva as boss Manuel Pellegrini looks to bring in cover for the injured Andriy Yarmolenko.
