Derek Boateng looks set to seal a Â£2 million deal to West London from Ukrainian outfit Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk.
After the Ghanaian returns from African Cup of Nations duty, there may be a return of a midfield play style reminiscent to Fulhamâ€™s most successful years.
The potential collaboration of Boateng and Karagounis (or the Greek and the Ghanaian?) is as close as you can get to the Europa League Final central midfield partnership.
Karagounis can do his own running and Boateng will instil some bite back into the Fulham team.
There is little doubt over is physical presence, but whether he will be able to make the huge leap from Ukrainian football to the Premier League is not yet clear.
