Fulham boss Martin Jol says the club is looking for some under-the-radar signings this winter.
The Cottagers need to strengthen their squad in January and Jol plans to use the scouting and analysis model which landed them the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Mladen Petric in the summer.
"We showed that we are able to get players in, even when they are not on the market because if players are on the market it is different," Jol told reporters.
"If you were president, chairman or chief executive at another club you never try and get rid of your best players - so we have to try and be inventive.
"We have to try to get the players who are not playing well or not fitting in at their other clubs, but they have to be better than the players we have got so we will come up with one or two solutions.
"It is not an easy situation but we know maybe one or two players who are having problems at their clubs - we always look to strengthen and if it possible we will do it."
