Bayern manager Thomas Tuchel has made Portugese international Palhinha his No1 target in the final hours of the summer window.
Fulham have turned down a £47million bid from Bayern and remain adamant that Palhinha is not for sale. Manager Marco Silva is determined to keep him after already losing key striker Aleksandar Mitrovic to Saudi Arabian club Al-Hilal this month.
The Cottagers demanded an overall package worth £80million for Palhinha when West Ham made a move to sign him earlier this summer.
Palhinha has four years left on his contract, so Fulham are in a strong position. The issue for the club could be whether the Portugal international, signed for £20m a year ago, tries to force through a move to the German giants.
Meanwhile, Wolves have asked Fulham to name a price for midfielder Harrison Reed. The 28-year-old is interested in a move which would guarantee him more game time, with Fulham also trying to tie up a deal for Everton’s Alex Iwobi.
