Fulham have made a formal approach to Derby County for Chris Martin and are confident of getting a deal for the 29-year-old striker over the line, according to the Sunderland Echo.

The Derby County hitman is wanted by Sunderland and Wolverhampton Wanderers, but Fulham have reportedly entered the race for his signature.

The Scotland international has been far from prolific this season, scoring just one goal in 23 Championship appearances, although 18 of those outings have come from the substitutes bench.

Slavisa Jokanovic will surely be looking to bolster his attacking ranks at Craven Cottage this month, with his side sitting just one point adrift of the play-off places.

An injection of both quality and experience could prove to be vital to their hopes of achieving promotion, and Martin could be just the man for the job.

He spent last season on loan with Fulham, and enjoyed a fairly successful time in west London, scoring 10 goals in 31 league outings.

Chris Martin of Derby County shoots at goal during the Sky Bet Championship match between Derby County and Burton Albion at iPro Stadium on December 2, 2017 in Derby, England.

The Sunderland Echo claim that the Cottagers have joined the likes of Sunderland and Wolves in the race for the 29-year-old's signature, and that they are confident of bringing him to Craven Cottage.

Martin would offer Fulham something different in forward areas, what with his physical approach to the game, and he could turn out to be a really significant signing for them, if they manage to get a deal over the line this month.
