English side Hull City will step up their chase for Ghana midfielder Rabiu Mohammed by holding talks with his French club Evian on Tuesday.
The newly-promoted Premier League side started talks with the club over a possible move for the hard-tackling midfielder late last week.
But with the transfer window drawing to a close in two weeks Hull will intensify their campaign to grab the player after holding a meeting on Tuesday.
Despite the interest from Fulham, Portuguese giants Benfica and Russian side Krasnodar who are also keen on signing the midfielder.
The player is keen on a move to a league where his game would be enhanced so England and Portugal are his preferred destination but the lure of Russian money could prove tempting.
The 23-year-old, a former target for Fulham, would cost around £2million.
Part of the Ghana side that won the 2009 FIFA U20 World Cup, Rabiu has eight caps for the senior team; the Black Stars.
He was also a part of the Evian team that won the French second division title in the 2010-2011 season while on loan from Italian side Udinese, which was sufficient to earn him a permanent deal.
Rabiu scored two goals and had four assists in 28 matches in Ligue 1 last season despite being a defensive midfielder.
