Fulham refuse to meet Catania's asking price for Maxi Lopez.

The Sun says Fulham have told Catania they will not pay £10million for Maxi Lopez.

Cottagers boss Martin Jol is keen on the former Barcelona striker but thinks the Italian club's valuation is way too high.

Spanish ace Lopez, 27, failed to make the grade in two years at Barca, playing just 14 times.

Fulham insiders say they will pay no more than £6m - but they may face competition from Serie A.
