Fulham have formalised their interest in Croatian Under 21 star Ante Vukusic, according to The Daily Mirror.

Vukusic, who has been labelled as “the new Luka Modric”, has been tracked by Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham, but it appears as though Fulham could be leading the chase for the Croatian.

The 20-year-old striker scored 18 times in 40 appearances last season for Hajduk Split.

Despite the possibility of Andy Johnson being sold to Queens Park Rangers, it is believed that Martin Jol is confident Fulham have enough firepower in Bobby Zamora, Moussa Dembele, and Clint Dempsey.

But that hasn’t stopped the rumour mill from suggesting that a Fulham bid for Vukusic is imminent. And any bid will reportedly have to start at £5 million.

In addition to the competition Fulham face from other Barclays Premier League sides in the race for the Croatian’s signature, German side Wolfsburg have long been linked and French giants Lyon are believed to have made an official approach.


But Fulham look set to lose out on one of their other young transfer targets.

Leeds United winger and Ivory Coast international Max Gradel, who had been tipped as one of Martin Jol’s top targets this summer, looks set to move to Lille in order to play Champions League football.

It appears Fulham have made their interest known, while West Ham have had a £2.5 million bid rejected, all the while Gradel waits for an approach from the French champions.
