Sydney FC not about to push for Fowler signature

Sydney FC have insisted they will not be pushing too hard for the signature of North Queensland Fury striker Robbie Fowler.

The reigning A-League champions, as well as rivals Perth Glory, have been linked with the former Liverpool man for weeks now but Sky Blues CEO Edwin Lugt said his club will not rush into anything as the Glory up the ante on the pursuit.

''We've been in talks with his manager [George Scott] since we first established contact about 10 days ago but we haven't reached a point yet where we've made an offer,'' Lugt said. ''It does not force us in to a different process.''
