Fulham midfielder Andre Zambo Anguissa has addressed reports linking him with a potential move to Real Madrid, suggesting he has not had any contact with the Spanish club.
The 24-year-old has impressed on loan at Villareal this term – featuring 28 times for Javier Calleja’s side and helping them climb to eighth.
It is understood that the Spanish club will not exercise their option to buy Anguissa at the end of the season but it appears there may be interest from elsewhere in La Liga.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Real Madrid are considering a move for the Fulham midfielder, who they see as a cut-price option in the upcoming transfer window.
Anguissa has addressed the rumours concerning his future in a recent interview with Canal+ Sport Afrique.
He said: “No, no, no, I can’t confirm anything at all.
“I’m not someone who reads or listens to rumours.
“My agent and I have a deal. He manages everything around me and I just focus on the park. At the end of the season, we will take stock of where we are and see if there is anything interesting.
“I can’t say there was any contact with anyone. I would be lying to you.”
The 24-year-old arrived at Craven Cottage after the club’s promotion to the Premier League last summer – signing from Marseille for a club-record £30 million fee.
Anguissa appeared 25 times for Fulham last season but has not featured for them since they were relegated back into the Championship.
The midfielder still has three years left on his current deal with the West London club but at this point it remains unclear where his future lies.

Anguissa has turned some heads with his performances in La Liga this season but it seems that there hasn’t been any contact from Real Madrid, or others, yet. Either that or he is unwilling to reveal it.
It is going to be very interesting to see where the midfielder is playing his football next season, particularly if Fulham are promoted.
If they’re back in the Premier League, could we see the 24-year-old reclaim a place in Scott Parker’s side or has that ship sailed? Only time will tell.
