Stefano Okaka's agent is confident the Roma striker could be on his way to Fulham by the end of the week.

Roma are willing to loan out the 20-year-old following the arrival of Italy striker Luca Toni from Bayern Munich.

Okaka's agent is confident a deal will be completed sooner rather than later and that the Italy under-21 international will do well in the Barclays Premier League.

"Sporting director (Daniele) Prade has not long returned," Domenico Scopelliti told Romagiallorossa.com. "I think that Roma and Fulham will talk in the next two days. It's important that the two clubs talk to each other.

"I think that Stefano is the right age for such a move.

"To play in the Premier League is not just a stroll, it's not something everyone can do.

"Fulham were interested last year as well and that could only make us happy.

"He has the right characteristics to do well in the Premier League.

"Hodgson has said some really good things about Stefano. It's gratifying that a coach of his calibre expressed himself in this way."
