Fulham are checking on Freiburg ace Demba Cisse, skysports.com understands.
The 25-year-old Senegal international forward has been in great form since moving to Germany in January this year from Metz.
He has scored 16 goals in just 29 appearances, including ten this term making him one of the top scorers in Europe.
Now his displays are attracting attention from a number of clubs, with Fulham emerging as one of the interested parties.
Cisse himself has admitted that he is settled at Freiburg, and will evaluate the situation at the end of the season.
It is believed Fulham have watched Demba three times this season, and will have no doubt been impressed by his displays.
German sources suggest that although they have financial issues, Freiburg would resist any offers to sell him until the summer – when they would likely look for a fee of around £4million for him. (Sky Sports)
Fulham have not been able to rely on Bobby Zamora for goals this season, as the Cottagers striker broke his leg against Wolverhampton Wanderers. Similarly, Moussa Dembele has struggled with injuries since his move to Craven Cottage.
As a result, they are only out of the relegation zone on goal difference, and have scored an average of just one goal a game in the fourteen Premier League matches so far.
Papiss Demba Cisse has scored more than that alone, and his keen eye for goal has seen him watched by some of Europe’s elite clubs.
According to this report, Fulham hope to secure his signature early to fend off their competition, and he could light up the Premier League.
