According to the Mail on Sunday, the Cottagers are lining up a swoop for Queens Park Rangers ace Luke Freeman as a potential replacement for Tom Cairney, who has been linked with a big-money move to Premier League sides West Brom and West Ham.

If Fulham do end up selling the attacking midfielder, they will obviously have to replace him.

The 27-year-old has really impressed for Slavisa Jokanovic's side this season, and the Serbian will be desperate to keep hold of him.

The Sun claimed earlier this week that the Cottagers value Cairney at £30 million, however, and if that price is met, he will be sold.

The Mail on Sunday claim that if Fulham do sell the Scotland international, they plan on replacing him with QPR's attacking midfielder Luke Freeman.

The 25-year-old has been in fine form for the Hoops this season, racking up three goals and nine assists in 28 Championship outings thus far.

He has been directly involved in eight more goals than Cairney, so on the face of it, it would seem like good business for the Cottagers, and with just three days remaining until the transfer window slams shut, this will certainly be one for Fulham fans to keep a very close eye on.
