Fulham are yet to make a move for AZ Alkmaar striker Vangelis Pavlidis, despite reports they recently sent scouts to watch him.

That’s according to AZ technical director Max Huiberts, who insists they will try to hold on to the player after his performances this season.

A report last month from Greece stated that Fulham had sent a scout to watch Pavlidis, who has 18 goals in 16 games in the Eredivisie this season and 22 goals in 27 games in all competitions, as they potentially look to bolster their forward options.

That report explained that because Pavlidis was entering the final year of his deal this year there could be a deal to be done for him, particularly as the player has indicated he won’t renew.

They would need to offer more than €15m for him as AC Milan have already seen a bid for that figure rejected, but either way there was a deal there to be done for the player.

Huiberts, though, insists that neither Fulham or anybody else have made an official offer for the striker yet anyway and he could be talked into remaining where he is until the end of the season even if they do.

“We know that there are many clubs that are interested in a good striker. And Pavlidis is that,” he told Langs de Lijn.

“But no one has yet come forward specifically. And he also knows that if he continues to perform like this, he will probably make a very nice step at the end of the season.”
