International hitman subject of Fulham bid

It appears that Fulham are the latest side to raise interest in Wigan’s Hugo Rodallega with the West London outfit submitting a bid for the forward.

Rodallega recently admitted that he is hoping to leave the Latics this year and a January move seems a strong possibility following raised interest in his signature.

Fulham’s bid is understood to comprise of a player-plus-cash deal which could include Andy Johnson moving in the opposite direction.

Johnson is another striker being linked with a January switch with Blackburn and QPR emerging as early favourites to sign the former Everton and Crystal Palace hitman.

Roberto Martinez appears open to losing Rodallega and has commented on the exit of the 26 year-old, stating: “We are in a position where no-one is bigger than the football club. Whatever could happen over the next 48 hours will be in the best interest of Wigan.

The Spaniard added: “Every individual situation is going to be down to that measurement.”

Rodallega’s contract at the DW Stadium is set to expire in the summer and rather than lose the player on a free transfer, Wigan may be tempted to cash in on the striker.

The forward has made over 100 appearances for Wigan Athletic scoring 24 goals in the process.

While he doesn’t hold the most prolific of scoring records, the South American has impressed greatly when handed sufficient supply and may be hoping to receive more of that as a Cottager.
