Fulham are considering making a move for Manchester United midfielder Scott McTominay in the January transfer window.

With Bayern Munich remaining determined to sign Joao Palhinha in the January transfer window, Fulham are lining up potential players who could replace him.

Palhinha signed a new five-year contract earlier this month, but it is still expected that the 28-year-old could leave for Germany when the transfer window reopens on January 1.

McTominay was linked with a move away from United this summer but wanted to remain at Old Trafford.

Following the arrival of Sofyan Amrabat at Old Trafford it is believed that McTominay may be more open to leaving in January.

The Scottish midfielder is high on Fulham’s list of potential replacements for Palhinha.
