Catania demand 6.5m for Lopez as Fulham's chase for Argentine continues
Fulham have been ordered to stump up 6.5million for Catania striker Maxi Lopez.
The Premier League club had a loan bid rejected earlier this month for the Argentine, who is also a target for Fiorentina and AC Milan.
Fulham boss Martin Jol is keen to bolster his attacking options with question marks over the future of current forwards Andy Johnson and Bobby Zamora.

Catania are prepared to let their star asset leave this month and have received an offer from Fiorentina, according to the Daily Mirror.
The Cottagers must now match that bid if they are to remain in the race for Lopez's signature.
The 27-year-old has scored three goals in 12 appearances this season.
