Fulham end Arouca chase - report
Premier League outfit Fulham have ended their interest in Santos midfielder Arouca according to reports in England.
The Daily Mail claims that the Cottagers were interested in acquiring the Brazilian's services to shore up their midfield, but have now pulled out of the deal.
This comes after the London club's announcement yesterday of their capture of Scott Parker from QPR.
Martin Jol was seeking a central midfielder and was examining several options, including Arouca, but has settled on Parker.
The publication suggests that the Brazilian was in negotiations over a £5 million move from Santos when Fulham pulled the plug on the deal.
Parker is now set to line up for Fulham in their upcoming Premier League clash with London rivals Arsenal on Saturday.
