Fulham could be set to make a double Swedish swoop, with Behrang Safari and Viktor Noring in their sights.
The Cottagers are reported to be piecing together their plans for the winter transfer window, with Mark Hughes keen to bolster his ranks.
FC Basel full-back Safari is among those on the Welshman's wish list, with the 25-year-old having been a Fulham target for some time.
Roy Hodgson attempted to take him to Craven Cottage last year, without success, but Basel vice-president Heusler Bernhand expects a second move to be made in January.
"They wanted to buy him last season and, from what I've heard, they are still interested," he told Expressen.
"They wanted to buy him before last season started, but we told them that we weren't interested in selling. That has now changed."
Safari's contract with the Swiss giants is set to expire in June 2011 and Basel are aware that they may need to cash in on the defender in the New Year if they are to avoid losing him for nothing.
Meanwhile, Fulham are also said to be tracking Trelleborg goalkeeper Noring.
The 19-year-old has been tipped for big things and his current employers accept that they will struggle to keep him in Sweden.
"Fulham have been studying Viktor. He will leave sooner or later," Trelleborg chairman Per-Anders Abrahamsson told Expressen.
Dutch giants Ajax are also monitoring Noring's progress and Abrahamsson expects the youngster to follow in the footsteps of former Trelleborg ace Andreas Isaksson in taking on a new challenge in one of Europe's top divisions.
"He will leave us, we know that. Just like Isaksson did," he added.
"We have a back-up if Viktor does leave us, but I don't want to speculate on when that might be."
