According to reports, Fulham manager Scott Parker is keen on signing in form forward Ademola Lookman permanently, with the English forward being contracted to RB Leipzig.


During his time at Craven Cottage, the on-loan Leipzig forward has impressed in recent weeks, maturing and performing consistently since his disastrous penalty against West Ham United.


However, the German club has refused to budge from their £15 million valuation of the forward, and Fulham are unable to pay that amount unless they secure Premier League survival.


During the summer transfer window, Fulham focused primarily on getting more options in defence and midfield, with their additions in attack all being permanent transfers from previous loans, with Lookman being the only new face in the attack.


Still just 23, Lookman has proven to be a vital player in their attack, being involved in six goals in the Premier League this season, his latest being a magnificent goal against Manchester United.


Leipzig will most likely not play the winger if he returns to the club, and so it would benefit Fulham and the player greatly if they are able to secure a permanent transfer for him as soon as possible.


His contract at Leipzig expires in 2024, and so Fulham will most probably have to match the £15 million valuation in order to stand a chance of signing him.
