Fulham will target Middlesbrough’s Cyrus Christie if they lose Ryan Fredericks on Deadline Day, Sky Sports News understands.
However, the Whites have not received any bids for Fredericks and, as things stand, he will be staying at Craven Cottage beyond the January window.
Right-back Fredericks is out of contract in the summer and has been discussing a new deal since December.
He is yet to sign and Swansea City have been interested in signing him this month.
Christie has made 25 Championship appearances for Boro this term after signing from Derby County last summer.
Boro have since changed managers, with Tony Pulis now at the helm after the club sacked Garry Monk in the autumn.
