FULHAM must pull out all the stops to keep Bobby Zamora at Craven Cottage.
So says team-mate Stephen Kelly , amid speculation the England striker wants to quit SW6 following a bust-up with Martin Jol.
The Whites boss has played down the spat with his star man, who was upset after being left out of the Europa League trip to Odense last month.
The reported fall-out has put potential suitors on red alert, with west London rivals QPR linked with an £8million move in the January transfer window.
But Kelly insists the morale in the camp is good, and says Fulham need to do all they can to hold on to their star man.
He said: “Bobby's huge for us. He's such an outlet and brings others into the game. A lot of our football is played around him and getting shots off his link-up play.
“He's an important player for the team, and it showed in the first-half of last season and for a couple of games this year when he's been missing.
“But we've bought a couple of players who have done well, and I'm sure with the way the manager rotates things sometimes others will play ahead of Bobby.
“I've not seen any bust-up – I think it's just stuff in the press. The manager's keeping things fresh and changing things to keep everyone on their toes.
“It means every game is a new team out there looking to impress. It only adds to the competition.”
