The England Under-17 international only made his first-team debut for the struggling West London club when he came off the bench in their 5-0 loss to Manchester City at Eastlands earlier this month, before then also entering the fray in the second half of the Cottagers’ 3-1 loss to Everton at Craven Cottage last Sunday.

However, the north Londoners are not the only club interested in signing the English attacking starlet though, with both La Liga giants Real Madrid and FC Barcelona also understood to be keen on landing the 17-year-old this summer too.

“Pat is a very big talent and he will have a great career in front of him, so I think it is good for him to make the experience now in the Premier League, so he will get used to it,” Fulham head coach Felix Magath told the club’s official website recently.

“He will be a player that we need in the future.”
