Fulham are interested in bringing Sheffield Wednesday’s Fernando Forestieri to Craven Cottage before the end of the transfer window, according to a report in The Sun.

The newspaper claims the West London side have offered around £12million to try and tempt the Owls into a quick sale for the attacker.

The Argentine has fallen out with manager Carlos Carvalhal and his team-mates, having had a high-profile argument with Wednesday team-mate Sam Winnall.

The Cottagers are seemingly prepared to come in and offer the 27-year-old a way out of Hillsborough, however, it could prove to be more difficult than they would hope.

Wednesday are determined to get more for their man, who is considered by many as one of the top players in the Championship for a number of seasons, and the club is in no rush to sell.

Despite the problems Forestieri has caused the Yorkshire outfit, The Owls are heavily backed financially with owner Dejphon Chansiri, although a sale would be in the best interests.

The club has spent big in the past, however, they are unable to make another signing having come close to going over their spending limit with regards to Financial Fair Play rules.

The money received from a possible transfer would allow for Carvalhal to use for recruitments as Wednesday try and push for a Premier League spot next season, having failed their last two attempts.

The Owls are facing a battle at trying to keep their best players at Hillsborough this summer, with many of their Championship rivals showing an interest in their stars.

Gary Hooper and Barry Bannan have been attracting a vast amount of attention within the league, which Wednesday will no doubt not want to sell to.

Jordan Rhodes is another key man that has been attracting the interest from other clubs in recent times, with Carvalhal’s side wanting at least £10m should they let him go.
