Fulham have been linked with a January move for Wolves striker Nouha Dicko, according to a report from Here is the City this afternoon.
Slavisa Jokanovic is keen to strengthen his attacking options in the new year and is poised to allow former England under-21 international Cauley Woodrow to leave Craven Cottage. The Serbian head coach has instructed his scouts to watch some of Europe’s in form forwards but is also keeping tabs on the Mali international, who has had his current season disrupted due to injury. Wolves would be unwilling to lose Dicko in January, but are braced for interest for the forward from a number of clubs.
Dicko, who joined Wolves from Wigan Athletic in January 2014, topped the scoring charts in his first season at the club with 13 goals in 19 games as Wolves romped to the League One title and added 15 goals the following year in the Championship, before suffering the knee injury that has so hampered him this year. The 24 year-old has only just recovered from a horrible anterior cruciate ligament injury and has scored twice in fourteen appearances this term, missing an open goal in the 4-4 draw against Fulham earlier this month.
League leaders Brighton and Hove Albion are known to be long-term admirers of the Mali international and Turkish giants Trabzonspor are also reportedly ready to make a bid when the transfer window re-opens in a few days time. Paul Lambert will be loathe to lose one of his key players – so any potential suitors will have to splash out big money to make a January move a realistic proposition.
