Fulham central defender Brede Hangeland is running out of contract and is set to be a free agent, not that this scenario will ever happen of course.
The Norwegian International has long been touted to make a step up to possibly even as high as Champions League football with his aerial presence and dominant tackling.
It appears that Arsenal would be the most prominent option within England as Wenger is known to have any eye for a bargain.
If he were to stay put he would be admitting that he is going to see out the rest of his career with the Cottagers and may be careful what he wishes for.
Is this such a bad thing though after all with a manager who clearly has faith in his abilities and wanting to tie him up to a new deal as soon as possible.
Jol said to the Daily Mirror: “We are talking to a few players and Brede is one of them. We are talking, which is a positive thing, and he wants to stay here. Hopefully there will be news in the next couple of weeks.”
He has though been stalling over a deal all season and whilst the grass may seem greener elsewhere, he should give careful though to leaving Craven Cottage this July.
