Liverpool and Arsenal chase Fulham's Hangeland

Fulham defender is in the last year of his contract and could be interested in a move.

Both Liverpool and Arsenal are supposedly keeping an eye on the contract situation of Brede Hangeland, with a view to bringing the defender in on a free transfer when his contract expires at the end of the season.

Early contract talks between Fulham and the player are thought to have taken place but, as of yet, no agreement has been formally reached.

As such, many clubs are thought to be keeping an eye on the Norwegian, who has impressed in four and a half campaigns at Craven Cottage. He joined the club under Roy Hodgson's reign for a minimal fee believed to be around only £1 million.

Since then, he has proved himself to be reliable, strong and consistent - three traits Arsene Wenger is still keen on imprinting on his back four at Arsenal.

Hangeland's neat footwork and passing ability would fit in well with the North London club, and would also be suited to Brendan Rodger's Liverpool who, under his management, are playing a distinctly more impressive brand of football.

If talks between Hangeland and Fulham continue to stall, the 31 year-old will be free to talk with any foreign team once the January transfer window commences. Once the season draws to a close, he can then talk to domestic clubs too.
