Fulham are fighting with Club Bruges to sign Zulte-Waregem youngster Junior Malanda.

The 18-year-old has been outstanding this season and has attracted Premier League scouts but Fulham are the first to make a move. They made two offers on Thursday but are still short of the £4million asking price, says the Daily Mail.

However, the Belgium U19 midfielder, who can also play in defence, is eager to come to England and play in the Premier League.
