Fulham have begun their fight to keep Moussa Dembele by calling the playmaker in for talks over a bumper new contract.

The Belgium international has been a star performer for Martin Jol's side this season and his performances have attracted interest from Premier League's high-fliers.

Tottenham have had two offers for Dembele rejected, while Liverpool and Arsenal are also keeping tabs on the talented 24-year-old.

Jol is desperate to keep the midfielder in west London and has instructed club officials to sit down with Dembele over a new deal as quickly as possible.

Dembele - who has excelled in an unfamiliar central midfield role in recent weeks - currently earns in the region of £35,000-per-week but will be handed a significant pay rise to sign an extension.

The Belgian has just over 12 months left on his existing deal and Fulham could be forced to sell him in the summer if he fails to pen a new contract.
