The London club join a number of Championship sides interested in the striker, who has struggled for first-team opportunities since Watford’s promotion to the Premier League last season.

Vydra was instrumental in the Hornet’s promotion campaign, scoring 16 goals to add to the 20 he scored in his previous loan spell at the club, and has proven himself to be prolific in England’s second tier.

The 23-year-old has since fallen behind Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo in the pecking order at Vicarage Road, however, and is yet to play a single minute of Premier League football.

As a result, a number of clubs are interested in the striker including Fulham, who are looking for someone to support Ross McCormack and Cauley Woodrow following the departure of Hugo Rodellega at the start of the summer.

Vydra might be tempted to drop back down to the Championship as he seeks first-team football, but if manager Kit Symons wants to bring the Czech international to Craven Cottage then he will have to meet Watford’s valuation of the player.

Fulham fans… What do you think? Is Vydra a player you want to see at your club? What will he bring to the team? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below1
