Jol ‘to beat Norwich, West Ham and Villa’ to signing of striker

Fulham boss Martin Jol is set to beat Norwich City, West Ham and Aston Villa to the signing of Huddersfield Town striker Jordan Rhodes, according to the Daily Mirror.

Jol is tipped to sign at least one striker this summer.

Several clubs have been linked with the 22-year-old, who has netted 40 goals this season – making him the country’s top scorer.

The League One play-off final against Sheffield United is expected to be Rhodes’ final appearance for Huddersfield.

And it is claimed that Fulham are poised to sign him for £3.5m after making a lucrative offer.

Jol is keen to sign a forward, with Andy Johnson looking likely to leave Craven Cottage this summer.
