Gradel: Claims he is a target for Fulham and West Ham as Leeds look to hang on to the winger
Leeds United winger Max Gradel claims Fulham are among a number of clubs who are interested in signing him this summer.
Gradel has already been the subject of a failed £2.5million bid from Championship rivals West Ham United and he has also been linked with Leicester City.
The 23-year-old is in the final year of his contract at Elland Road and has yet to agree an extension with Simon Grayson's side.
Fulham boss Martin Jol appears to be in the market for a wide man after making a bid for FC Twente's Nacer Chadli, and could offer Gradel the chance to play Premier League and European football.
Gradel told the Daily Mail: "Are Fulham interested in buying me? Yes. I know West Ham are interested in buying me, too."
Whites boss Grayson is determined to hang onto Gradel, and the Leeds boss said recently: "We've shown our intentions already. We've had bids for a couple of players and turned them down.
"Max Gradel and others can certainly fulfil their ambitions of getting into the Premier League with our football club."
