Fulham have reportedly tabled an offer to bring Levante centre-back Chema Rodriguez to Craven Cottage, according to various reports in Spain.
The 27-year-old who can also play at right-back has apparently made it known that he is keen on a potential move to England and has been a long-term target of Fulham's Director of Football Operations, Tony Khan.
Chema, who came through the Elche youth system, spent a couple of seasons with Atletico Madrid’s second string and has impressed during three years with Levante.
The defender helped The Frogs return to the Spanish top flight at the first time of asking, scoring three goals in 33 appearances, as Levante won the league title with 84 points.
He has continued to shine in La Liga as his side comfortably avoided relegation over the past two seasons, scoring three goals in his 45 top-flight appearances.
