Fulham manager Mark Hughes hopes to sign Mexico left-back Carlos Salcido from PSV Eindhoven before the transfer window closes on 31 August.
Hughes admitted Fulham have made a bid for the 30-year-old, who played for his country at the 2010 FIFA World Cup™, and reports in England on Wednesday suggested that offer had been accepted. Hughes insists his pursuit of Salcido does not mean that Fulham's current left-back Paul Konchesky will be sold.
"We have made enquiries," said Hughes, after watching Fulham beat Port Vale 6-0 in the second round of the League Cup. "He (Salcido) is a player I am interested in and we are hopeful it might be concluded."
Konchesky has been linked with a move to Liverpool, where he would link up again with former Fulham manager Roy Hodgson. "We are looking to have quality in all positions. Left back is a position we are a little light in," said Hughes. "It is not a foregone conclusion that Paul Konchesky goes because we are looking to bring someone else in."
