The 30-year-old's game time at Chinese side Shanghai SIPG is under threat after the club signed Brazilian striker Hulk.

Gyan reportedly earns £227 000 (R4.2 million) a week in China, which puts him in seventh position among the top earners in the game, according to the latest reports.

Sky Sports have now linked him with a move to Championship side Fulham, with the player reportedly said to be one of coach Slavisa Jokanovic's personal targets.

The Ghana captain, who has also been linked with a loan move to Besiktas, could reportedly fly to England for a medical this week.

However, Gyan would have to take a serious pay cut in order to seal a transfer to Fulham.

The striker has scored just eight goals in 26 games since joining Shanghai in 2015.
