Ajax have confirmed Fulham have been in contact over a possible deal to bring Eyong Enoh to Craven Cottage.
The 26-year-old Cameroon international moved to the Dutch giants from feeder club Ajax Cape Town in 2008.
However, he has struggled for first-team action this season, making just seven appearances, five of those from the bench.
Fulham boss Martin Jol knows all about Enoh's talents following his spell as Ajax boss during the 2009/10 season.
He has now made tentative enquires about a deal to bring the defensive midfielder to the Premier League ahead of the transfer deadline.
When quizzed about a potential deal for Enoh, Ajax technical director Marc Overmars confirmed Fulham had been in contact but stressed a transfer was far from complete.
"Negotiations has to start up first," Overmars told De Telegraaf. "Nothing is sure for now."
