Fulham will have to come up with a stunning £15million to sign Lookman from RB Leipzig on a permanent basis.
Lookman, 23, has often dazzled in his loan spell from Germany.
Now the Cottagers’ boss Scott Parker would like him to stay if that can be arranged.
However, Leipzig still wants a sky-high fee and that cannot be easily arranged with Fulham in their current league position.
They will struggle to commit to a signing at this point but plan to try if they stay up.
Former Everton winger Lookman has scored twice, adding three assists, in 14 Premier League games this season.
