Championship struggler out to keep Spurs and Juventus target

Championship strugglers Fulham are not aiming to sell star forward Moussa Dembele despite receiving offers, according to the London Evening Standard.

The 19-year old has notched 11 goals this season, emerging as one of the hottest properties outside the Premier League.

Though he is out of contract at the end of the season, manager Slavisa Jokanovic has reiterated his desire to keep the Frenchman at Craven Cottage.

‘We are not in a position where we have to sell our best player’, stated the 47-year old Serbian tactician.

Tottenham Hotspur are among the clubs to be linked with the former Paris Saint-Germain trainee, though Serie A giants Juventus and Roma are thought to be monitoring his progress.

The Evening Standard suggest that even if Dembele is prized away, the Cottagers will want to structure a deal in which he is loaned back to the club.

The West London are battling relegation in the second tier, sitting just four points above the drop zone.
