Fulham are chasing Oostende striker Cyriac, according to the Mirror (Friday edition, page 57).

The Cottagers are looking to add to their attacking options, having seen last season's 40-goal pair Moussa Dembele and Ross McCormack depart for Celtic and Aston Villa respectively.

Former Hull City forward Sone Aluko has arrived in their place, though a number of others have been linked in the meantime.

Head coach Slavisa Jokanovic is said to be battling Derby County to land Manchester United's James Wilson on loan before the weekend (Telegraph), while a £6 million move for Montpellier's Steve Mounié was reported in the Sun last month.

However, Cyriac has now emerged as an alternative to the pair. The former Anderlecht striker, who is reportedly valued at £2.5 million, only moved to Oostende a year ago and scored 13 goals in 28 Jupiler Pro League matches.

Formerly of ASEC Mimosas and Standard Liege, the 26-year-old has been capped four times by the Ivory Coast national team.
