FULHAM have joined the Sammie Szmodics fan club as the 28-year-old Blackburn hitman keeps on scoring.

Last week scout Brian Talbot saw Szmodics make it 21 this term.

Brentford are also keen and Rovers hope to stay in the Championship and bag a huge fee if clubs come calling — but relegation may change the picture.

John Eustace’s side are currently 17th in the second tier with eight matches remaining.

Saturday’s goalless draw at Middlesbrough leaves Blackburn three points above the drop zone.

Despite failing to find the target this weekend, though, Szmodics remains top of the scoring charts.

The 28-year-old has 21 goals in 36 league appearances this term as well as three assists.

He also scored six goals in three FA Cup matches for Blackburn as they reached the fifth round of the competition.

Fulham’s interest comes amid an upturn in form for striker Rodrigo Muniz.

The Brazilian has scored seven goals in his last seven Premier League matches after his brace against Tottenham on Saturday.

Szmodics’ form has also seen him earn a maiden Republic of Ireland call-up for their upcoming friendlies.

Interim boss John O’Shea has included Szmodics for this month’s matches against Belgium and Switzerland.
