Fulham set to sign Russian striker

Fulham are close to signing Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak from German club Stuttgart.

The 28-year-old, who has previously been linked with Arsenal, is having talks ahead of a pre-deadline move to Craven Cottage.

His expected arrival in west London will add to speculation that Fulham may offload Andrew Johnson.

Pogrebnyak joined Stuttgart in 2009 after a two-year spell with Russian side Zenit St Petersburg. He started his career at Spartak Moscow.
