Fulham suffered relegation to the Championship after losing 2-0 against Burnley at home on Monday night. 

According to reports from the Daily Mail, the Cottagers are braced for a battle to keep their manager Scott Parker.

Despite Fulham’s relegation, Parker is a man in demand due to his philosophy at Craven Cottage.

The report claims that a host of players could leave Fulham following their demotion to the Championship.

The Cottagers signed seven loanees, while some key players are being targeted by top Premier League clubs.

Joachim Andersen, the on-loan Lyon defender has been targeted by Tottenham Hotspur, while West Ham United boss David Moyes is an “admirer” of striker Aleksandar Mitrovic.

The 26-year-old has bagged four goals and three assists in all competitions this season.

Mitrovic is a vastly experienced Premier League player and could be a smart addition for the Hammers.

There is a general perception that Mitrovic is more influential playing in the Championship – having scored 12 goals (2017-18) and 26 (2019-20) for Fulham – and that he is not that effective in the Premier League.

However, it isn’t easy to judge him based on his performances for the Cottagers. He would probably be more effective with better players around him.

West Ham need to sign a striker in the summer. The Hammers sold Sebastien Haller in January, while Michail Antonio is injury-prone.

The 26-year-old has a contract at the club until 2024, and Fulham are expected to demand a high transfer fee for him if he decides to move on.
