FC Nordsjaelland defender Jores Okore is a target for Fulham.

The People says the 20-year-old was being tracked by Chelsea and Manchester United, but seems to have been swayed by Fulham boss Martin Jol’s promise of immediate first-team football at Craven Cottage.

The Ivory Coast-born defender played against the Blues in the Champions League this season and the European champions were keen to take him to Stamford Bridge.
