Menezes, 23, is considering his future at the Estadio da Luz after struggling to hold down regular first team place at the recently deposed Portuguese Liga champions.

Menezes' agent Luiz Carlini has travelled to London to attend the Champions League final at Wembley and will talk to Fulham officials during his short stay in England.

"Fulham want Felipe and there's a possibility the move could happen," Carlini told Portuguese newspaper A Bola. "Felipe wants regular football and the Premier League is a big option.

"Fulham are an interested club which I've learned already. Let's see. We have already been contacted by several clubs, but England would be an interesting option."

The Cottagers are thought to want Menezes on a one-year loan with the option to buy.
