It is another major setback for Fulham who are already battling to keep Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Al-Ahly have offered Silva £400,000 A WEEK and want a swift deal to get him on board for their Austrian training camp.

Silva’s agents are said to be in London for talks with Saudi officials.

Serbian striker Mitrovic, 28, has told relatives he will never play for the Cottagers again after the club valued him at £52m.

Mitrovic is angry at being priced out of a move after two failed bids from Al-Hilal.

The forward is understood to be furious at the club’s valuation of him as he prepares to jet out for their pre-season tour of the USA.

Fulham will take on Brentford, Aston Villa and Chelsea during the trip as part of the Premier League Summer Series.

Silva and Mitrovic’s potential departures come as Fulham continue to chase their first signing of the summer.


The club have been able to tie down Willian to a new contract, though.

Willian had looked set to leave Craven Cottage after his one-year deal expired before he penned an extension through to next summer.
