Fulham, Everton and Man Utd target after new challenge

Agent says Vegard Forren will stay at Molde for the meantime but is open to the idea of something new

The agent of Molde defender Vegard Forren has stated that his client is keen to seek a new challenge away from his current club.

Forren has attracted much interest of late and, according to Sky Sports News, some of Europe's finest will be out in force on Thursday evening to watch him play in the Europa League against Stuttgart.

Fulham, Everton and Manchester United are thought to be among those interested and Forren may well be open to the idea of a move to the British Isles.

Brede Hangeland has already spoken out about the merits of his international team mate and Martin Jol, the Fulham manager, has not gone on record to rule out a move for the 24 year-old.

However, Jim Solbakken, the player's representative, was eager to stress that if the right move doesn't materialise then his client is happy to remain in his home country.

"There is still a big interest for Vegard and other Molde players," Solbakken told Romsdal Budstikke.

"Vegard is keen to get a new challenge, but at the same time he is happy at Molde.

"In case nothing that is interesting for both him and the club, he will stay at Molde."
