Fulham boss Martin Jol has acknowledged his interest with Ghana international Derek Boateng who currently plies his trade in Ukraine with Dnipro.
"There is no movement there," Jol said. "I am not frustrated because of the reasons you think.
"Of course there are a lot of players that would probably make us stronger and we are not like Real Madrid, you know.
"We cannot offer £10million or £15million and get the players on the board. It is almost impossible so we have to not only be inventive, you need a bit of luck as well. That is probably the case now."
