Fulham are bracing themselves for interest in Moussa Dembele in January after contract talks stalled, sources have told TEAMtalk.com.

Dembele has impressed for Fulham this season, scoring nine goals in all competitions, including the equaliser in the 1-1 draw with MK Dons on Saturday.

The Frenchman’s form this term is now attracting interest from a number of Premier League clubs with the likes of Tottenham and Everton admirers of the forward.

Dembele’s current deal is due to expire at the end of this season and Fulham have been locked in talks with the player and his representative for some time as they look to secure his long-term future.

Last month Fulham were confident of agreeing a new contract with Dembele, but the deal has been held up due to the growing interest from Premier League clubs and also the managerial situation at Fulham with the club currently without a manager following the departure of Kit Symons.

Due to the delay in resolving the contract situation Fulham are expecting bids for Dembele when the transfer window reopens in January and the highly-rated forward could even agree a pre-contract deal with interested clubs in the New Year.
