Fulham are reportedly set to raid Premier League rivals Leicester City for a trio of out of favour players in January.

According to a report from TEAMtalk, new Cottagers boss Claudio Ranieri will return to the club he famously guided to the Premier League title in 2016 and poach three of their squad.

Ranieri is said to be keen on the idea of signing Danny Simpson, Christian Fuchs and Shinji Okazaki in the new year.

Both Simpson and Fuchs have fallen out of favour at the King Power, despite playing a key role in Ranieri’s title-winning season in the Midlands.

The emergence of Ben Chilwell and the summer signing of Ricardo Pereira mean both have found game time hard to come by.

Okazaki has also been used largely off the bench, with Jamie Vardy continuing to lead the line for the Foxes this season.

Furthermore, the same report links them with out of contract centre-back Robert Huth, with the Cottagers currently possessing the leakiest defence in the top-flight.
