Fleetwood Town are interested in signing Brentford striker Farid El Alagui.
The former Falkirk frontman has started just once in the league this season, but has managed six goals in 18 games overall.
El Alagui was linked with a move to Partick Thistle, although the deal looks dead in the water after the SPL side swooped for Lyle Taylor instead.
However, League Two outfit Fleetwood are keeping tabs on his situation with view to making a move later this month.
Brentford are set to complete the signing of Arsenal youngster Chuba Akpom in the next few days, as exclusively revealed by the Chronicle, which could force El Alagui even further down the Griffin Park pecking order.
The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has yet to be offered fresh terms in west London.
