The England under-19 international has been hailed as one of the most exciting young players in the country, but he has been unable to help propel the west London club further up the table.
Last summer he had attracted interest from the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham, but were put off by Fulham’s whopping £15m valuation.
However, with just 12 months remaining on his current deal at Craven Cottage, they cannot be expected to command that kind of money anymore, especially because he has started just three games for the club all season.
And despite his struggle to get into the Fulham side, he has been in red hot form for the England under-19 side, for whom he has bagged an impressive five goals in eight games.
