Alexander Kačaniklić joined Fulham in August 2010 as part of the deal that took former left-back Paul Konchesky to Liverpool.

In scoring goals and making a number of assists for Fulham's Development side, Kačaniklić pushed himself to the fore and following a series of standout performances quickly caught the attention of a number of clubs. In a bid to further his development with regular first-team football, he joined Championship side Watford on loan in January 2012. The young winger impressed at Vicarage Road, so much so, he was recalled by Fulham just two months later.

Kačaniklić will look back at the 2011/12 season as his breakthrough campaign as he finished the season with four impressive performances for the Whites – playing his part in the defeats of Norwich City, Bolton Wanderers and Liverpool and the 1-1 draw with Chelsea. 

After making 19 appearances - and scoring three goals - in the 2012/13 campaign, Kačaniklić joined Championship side Burnley on 1st March on loan, but he was recalled on the 18th of April.

His most impressive game upon his return came in the final match of the season when he put in a dazzling display away at Swansea City. After opening the scoring in the first half with a crisp strike from the edge of the area, he later hit the woodwork before drawing a save from Michel Vorm which led to Urby Emanuelson scoring the rebound to make it 3-0.

Now a full Sweden international, Kačaniklić made 23 league appearances for Fulham during the 2013/14 season, scoring once.

On transfer deadline day in September 2014, the winger agreed a one-year contract extension at the Club before joining Danish outfit FC Copenhagen on a season-long loan deal. He was, however, recalled from the loan spell in January by Kit Symons.

Made 15 appearances upon his return to Fulham, finding the back of the net twice.
