Transfer wish list

I just thought I would speculate on a few possible signings that I would like to see at Fulham. Most of them are mere fancy though, so don't get too outraged.

Goalkeeper - Fulham are suddenly well stocked in this department. They could also get Ben Foster on loan from Man United I suppose.

Defender - A right back is desperately needed as Woy doesn't seem to rate Volzy there. The club has been linked with Paul Scharner who I think is a very interesting player. He's a threat in the air in the opposition box too.
They could really do with a bit of pace at the back too. Preston's Sean St Ledger might be a good shout there. He's a gobby little shit too, so he might be able to bring some fight to the team.

Midfielder - Bear with me on this, but £5m on Darren Fletcher would be the best bit of business for the club in my opinion. He's been edged out of the United team this season and is a combative midfielder who can pick out a pass.
Thomas Gravesen might also be a steely alternative and is more or less unwanted at Celtic. However he will be on big wages and he is not as good as he was when unexpectdly signed by Real Madrid.
I like to see wingers in a side, but it's a dying art it seems. Morten Gamst Pedersen hasn't had the best of seasons, but has shown some class in the past, and with Mark Hughes leaving Blackburn there may be a few players up for grabs there.

Forward - A cheeky bid for David Nugent might pay dividends. I realise he hasn't exactly set the world alight this season, but the boy has got talent, pace and hunger. Something clearly isn't right at Portsmouth and maybe a trip to Putney can rectify the situation? I reckon he could be picked up for about £3m. A bargain of Mo's money.
Someone who has already been here, been a hit with the fans and could give the club a bit of flair is Vincenzo Montella. Owned by Roma, he has spent all season on loan at Sampdoria, scoring four times in 13 games.
A proper target man to replace McBride would also be useful. Woy's big friends with Kevin Davies, but James Beattie may be a bit cheaper and he has just scored 22 in 41 games last season for Sheffield United, who failed to get promotion.

I don't have an encyclopedic knowledge of football at the mo - and would have liked to have another winger on the wish list - but its easy to lose touch when you don't play Football Manager.
