The 23-year-old Dutchman, son of legendary Dutch striker Patrick Kluivert, is out of favor with Roma and Fulham has been chasing the winger all summer.

Sports post reported earlier this month that the newly promoted side had spoken with Roma about the prospect of signing the two-time Dutch international.

Kluivert broke through at Ajax as a teenager before moving to Roma in 2018 for 14.8 million pounds.

He initially impressed but gradually slipped down the pecking order and was loaned out to RB Leipzig and Nice over the past two seasons.

Fulham has already entered the transfer market this summer to sign players such as Joao Palhinha, Issa Diop, Andreas Pereira, Kevin Mbabu, Bernd Leno, Manor Solomon and Shane Duffy.

Kluivert has been eliminated by Roma manager Jose Mourinho, who banned him from Roma training camp for the season and forced the winger to participate in the sessions on his own as negotiations over his future took place.

Fulham appear short on offense and wide outside, with Fabio Carvalho being sold to Liverpool this summer, Anthony Knockaert and Ivan Cavaleiro out of favor and new hire Manor Solomon unlikely to play until the new year following a knee injury.

Kluivert made 68 appearances in all competitions for Roma, scoring nine times and providing 10 assists.
