Fulham manager Martin Jol says he hopes to fend off interest from all clubs in teenage forward Moussa Dembele.
Dembele, 17, is now playing for Fulham’s Under-21 side, and was an unused substitute for their 2-1 defeat at home to Swansea at the weekend.
Last night he scored two goals to help Fulham Under-21s beat Aston Villa Under-21s in the Premier League Cup.
Jol is quoted by the Fulham Chronicle as saying, “Dembele came in two years ago and is still under contract.
“He’s only 17 now, but he’s strong and scores goals every match. I took him up to the Under 21s already. The boy loves it here. The only thing we’ve got to do is in the next couple of years to keep him here.”
