Fulham are one of a trio of Premier League clubs who are supposedly targeting Zambia striker Emmanuel Mayuka after his exploits in the African Cup of Nations.

Mayuka currently plies his trade with Swiss side Young Boys, where he is top scorer with six goals. His performances for Zambia in their African Cup of Nations triumph were of the highest quality and Arsenal and Newcastle have also taken note of his availability.

At only 21 years of age, the forward is still considered to be ripening, but it hasn't stopped a whole host of European clubs tracking him too, while those in Africa are labelling him one of the greatest prospects currently in the continent.

Despite the European interest, Mayuka's agent has suggested he prefers a move to England.

"There has been interest shown from Arsenal, Newcastle and Fulham," Mayuka's agent, James Barret, told talkSport.

"Emmanuel wants to play in the Premier League, which he feels is the best in the world, but there is more concrete interest from other European clubs."
