Fulham want to make Manor Solomon's loan move permanent this summer.

The 23-year-old Israeli is in blistering form and has scored four goals in his last four games, only one of them starts, including Tuesday’s curling clincher in the 2-0 win over Leeds to secure a FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United.

Solomon joined Fulham on loan from Shakhtar Donetsk last summer, but missed three months before the World Cup after suffering a serious knee injury on the opening day of the season.

After returning to fitness, he has been starring for the Cottagers in their unlikely push for Europe as he continues to catch the eye.

Manager Marco Silva expects competition for his signature and Fulham know a move could be complicated by FIFA transfer rules around signing players from Ukrainian clubs.

A fresh agreement is needed with Shakhtar after Fulham secured a free one-year loan deal last summer.
