Fulham striker Dimitar Berbatov is due to have a medical with Monaco this afternoon ahead of a potential move to the Ligue 1 side.

Berbatov had been linked with a return to Tottenham, but it is understood the striker has been given permission to speak to Monaco instead.

The 33-year-old is expected to fly to the principality and undergo a medical.

Both parties hope a deal can be concluded before the 11pm transfer deadline.

Berbatov joined Fulham in August 2012 and enjoyed a successful first season with the club, scoring 15 goals.

This term has been a different story for the Bulgarian, however.

He has found the net just four times in the Barclays Premier League and his agent indicated that his client was unhappy at Craven Cottage shortly after the sacking of Martin Jol.

A move back to White Hart Lane, where he was adored by the club's fans, would have been an ideal scenario for Berbatov.

But a transfer to Monaco would still be a good move for the former Manchester United man.

Monaco sit second in Ligue 1 and they have a free space in their starting XI following a season-ending injury to Colombia star Radamel Falcao.

If Fulham clear Berbatov off their wage bill they will have room to bring in new signings.
