The agent of Fulham midfielder Moussa Dembele has told reporters that Real Madrid are looking to secure his client's services this summer.

Dembele, 25, had an impressive 2011-12 season in the Premier League and has caught the attention of several top sides, with Manchester United among those linked.

The Belgium international featured in a deep-lying midfield role under Dutch manager Martin Jol and won over many of his previous critics as he inspired Fulham to some impressive results in the second half of the season.

Jan de Visser, of the Sports International management agency, has claimed that they have received several approaches for their player, including one from Real Madrid.

"Real Madrid have contacted us and asked about the possibility of signing Moussa Dembele," De Visser told De Telegraaf. "They are not the first big club who have contacted us this summer for him."
