Kacaniklic 'happy' at Fulham despite interest from abroad, says agent

The midfielder's agent insists the 21-year-old will stay at the club in light of admirers in Italy, but admits that garnering admirers is only natural following his recent form

Alexander Kacaniklic is concentrating solely on playing for Fulham despite interest from abroad, according to the Sweden international’s agent.

The 21-year-old winger has impressed for the Cottagers after being afforded a starting berth in recent weeks by manager Martin Jol, with his impressive performances reportedly courting many admirers.

But, despite claimed interest from Italy, Kacaniklic’s agent Miro Jaganjac is adamant the young midfielder is committed only to turning out for the Craven Cottage outfit every week.

"Of course the interest has increased since he started playing in the Premier League," Jaganjac told Fotbolldirekt.se.

"Right now, though, the most important thing is Fulham.”

Kacaniklic signed a new two-year contract this summer and repaid the faith shown in him by scoring his first Fulham goal in the 5-0 win over Norwich on the opening day, while he also assisted both of Dimitar Berbatov’s goals against West Brom last month.

However, his agent insists that the talented youngster is happy with life at Craven Cottage and that a move abroad is not on the cards.

"There are some fantastic clubs interested. He is young and playing well, and good clubs are interested in good players.

"But he is happy at Fulham and right now all he wants to do is play well for them and offer them a boost."
