Fulham have handed a trial to Moroccan international Adil Chihi.
The 26-year-old was released by Cologne at the end of the season and is hoping to earn a deal with the Cottagers.
Chihi featured for Fulham in a pre-season friendly defeat to Rangers on Thursday as he tries to prove his worth to Felix Magath.
The German-born midfielder has made nearly 150 appearances for Cologne since progressing through the club's ranks.
Magath, who has managed Bayern Munich, Wolfsburg and Schalke among his previous clubs, returned to his homeland to sign Kostas Stafylidis on a season-long loan from Bayer Levekusen this week.
And the Craven Cottage chief is casting an eye over another player with Bundesliga experience as Chihi attempts to win a deal in England.
