Sky Sports News understands that Andrew Johnson is undergoing a medical at Fulham.
The Everton striker has attracted attention from a host of clubs this summer, with Wigan making no secret of their admiration for the England international.
However, the former Crystal Palace man is believed to favour a move back to the capital, citing family reasons as the motive behind his decision.
There had been rumours that he was in London to discuss personal terms with Fulham last week, after he left Everton's pre-season friendly with Preston before the game had got underway.
Everton were quick to deny that the forward was set for an imminent exit, but would appear to have now bowed to the player's wishes.
It is thought that Fulham are willing to pay between £10-12million for a player who has eight caps for his country.
Johnson joined Everton in the summer of 2006 and has helped the Toffees secure Uefa Cup football in each of the two seasons he has spent on Merseyside.
