Fulham have endured a difficult season in the Championship, although the goals of Ross McCormack and Dembele, who has 16 in 43 appearances, has eased any relegation fears.

McCormack handed in a written transfer request in January with a view to a move to Middlesbrough, although he signed a new contract the following month.

Dembele, however, will not be doing the same, having already confirmed that he will not sign a new deal with the London club with his current contract expiring this summer.

Another London club that are reportedly ready to offer Dembele a Premier League move is Tottenham, with Mauricio Pochettino’s unable to agree a deal with Fulham in January.

Depending on the terms offered, it appears likely that Spurs will be favourites to sign the striker due to their impending Champions League qualification although the man himself may be more tempted to be part of a rebuilding job at Chelsea under new manager Antonio Conte.

Dembele also has interest from Germany, Italy and Spain, with Chelsea facing plenty of competition for his signature.

What do you think Fulham fans? Is there any chance that Dembele will sign a new deal? If not, where should he play his football next season? Post your thoughts and opinions below!
