Fulham are to keep a close eye on the situation of Nelson Oliveira at Norwich, after ​Derby supposedly tabled an offer of £8m.

The striker, who signed from Benfica in 2016, has struggled to show consistency in the Championship this season and is being linked with a move away from Carrow Road.

The Portuguese international has managed seven league goals so far this season but the Canaries are understood to have their reservations about the 26-year-old.

As reported by the Sun, ​Fulham are closely monitoring Oliveira, who is also being courted by ​Premier League strugglers Swansea and ​Championship leaders Wolves.

The 27-year-old has scored just one league goal in 20 appearances and has clearly had difficulty adapting to the tough division, and Oliveira could be the man to provide a shake up.

The Cottagers have been going steadily in the Championship this season and sit just out of the play-off places in eighth.
