Fulham boss Lawrie Sanchez is set to launch a £2 million bid for Espanyol striker Walter Pandiani.

El Mundo Deportivo says Sanchez intends to make the offer next week. The bid is almost double what Wolfsburg offered last week for Uruguay international Pandiani.

Espanyol are ready to sell Pandiani as they seek ways to fund coach Ernesto Valverde's summer transfer plans.
