Fulham have had an offer for Ravel Morrison rejected by Premier League rivals West Ham.
Rene Meulensteen confirmed the Cottagers failed in a bid for the former Manchester United youngster, but claims the midfielder is keen to join the Whites.
"Yes, we did make a bid," said the Fulham boss after the 3-0 FA Cup third round replay victory over Norwich.
"Yes, I think he does want to come. He would add pace, power, unpredictability and a real attacking threat.
"I don't know what the situation is now, because that's left with Alistair Macintosh.
"We got knocked back, it got rejected, and so we need to review it and move on.
"I've explained how I think about the situation (to the Fulham board), so we'll have to wait and see what happens.
"I've known him for a long, long time, but the thing is this: we have to wait and see how the club takes it forward as to whether there's another bid."
