Belgian feels Fulham can challenge at the top end of the table

Moussa Dembele does not feel that he is 'losing time' at Fulham, but has confirmed he is keen to eventually play for a club in the top five. The Belgium international has created a favourable impression at Craven Cottage since moving to the Premier League from AZ Alkmaar in 2010. He has been repeatedly linked with a move to Tottenham Hotspur and the 24-year-old has claimed there has been interest from Fulham's London rivals. However, the attacker believes the Cottagers are capable of challenging at the top end of the table and is in no rush to move on.

Ambitious

"I'm not concerned about losing time here, but it's clear that I'd like to play at a higher level," Dembele told The People. "Spurs were interested but I can't talk about other clubs. I'm ambitious and would like to play for a club in the top five. "It's hard to say what is stopping Fulham from progressing. We have good players and I feel we're better than all the clubs except for the Big Four, and Manchester City. "But each season we change our coach which makes it difficult."
