Fulham have made an approach for Wolves attacker Jordan Graham, according to a reliable journalist.
Express and Star reporter Tim Spiers claimed on his personal Twitter account on Friday that the Cottagers have enquired about the winger’s availability but it is understood that no offer has been made as of yet.
Fulham enquired about Jordan Graham a few weeks ago but haven't made an offer. Nothing currently on the table. #wwfc

This comes after former Wolves correspondent for the Express and Star Tim Nash claimed on his personal Twitter account that Graham, 22, was poised to join Fulham on a loan deal.

Graham spent almost the entirety of last season on the sidelines with a serious injury, but after a spate of arrivals at Molineux this summer, the former England Under-17 international has struggled to earn a spot in Nuno Espirito Santo’s first-team plans for the Championship campaign.
The attack-minded winger has again been troubled by a knee injury, leaving him to just play six minutes of Wolves’ first four league fixtures this term.
He played all 90 minutes of both Carabao Cup wins against Yeovil and Southampton and that appears to have caught the eye of Championship rivals Fulham.
Football Insider Verdict
Graham still has a lot of untapped potential that is waiting to be released, but with the big number of new faces at Molineux this season it might be hard for the winger to get enough first-team experience to be able to show that ability. Fulham are a club that have top facilities and could be fighting Wolves for promotion this season – and that is exactly why they shouldn’t let him join them. The West Midlands side could be shooting themselves in the foot by letting Graham join the Cottagers because he could potentially strengthen their promotion bid. Lending him out is a good option, but it should be to a team further down the rankings.
