Fulham are chasing Ivory Coast international striker Cyriac to boost their forward options, according to a report in the Daily Mirror.

The Whites are considering tabling a ¬£2.5m offer for the 26 year-old, who scored 13 goals in 28 league games during his first season with Belgian side Oostende last term. He has yet to find the net in their three Jupiler League matches this season but a significant bid would test Oostende’s desire to hold onto a player who they only purchased last July from Anderlecht.

He scored 11 goals in 76 appearances for the Belgian giants, helping them back-to-back league titles and three Super Cups. Cyriac had previously scored eighteen goals in 66 matches for Standard Liege, having moved to the-then Belgian champions in 2009 and helping them retain their crown in his first season after topping the Ivory Coast scoring charts for ASEC Mimosas. He has scored once in six caps for his country.

Cyriac also has Champions’ League and Europa League experience with Anderlecht but it remains to be seen whether he is Slavisa Jokanovic’s top target to replace the goals of Moussa Dembele and Ross McCormack. Fulham were linked with a move earlier in the summer but they are also known to be keen to take Manchester United forward James Wilson on loan.
