Arsenal Target Fulham’s Brede Hangeland

Arsenal have renewed their interest in Brede Hangeland as boss Arsene Wenger looks to revamp his squad in the summer.

It is five seasons since they won a major trophy – and Wenger has decided he needs to beef up his team without losing the style that has won them so many admirers during his 14-year reign.

Norwegian international Hangeland – who will be 29 in June – has been outstanding for Fulham as the west London club have reached the semi-finals of the Europa League as well as establishing themselves as a Premier League outfit.

Wenger will have Hangeland watched at Everton today as he draws up his short list of targets.

Fulham will be reluctant to sell and will put Hangeland in the £10million bracket. But that will not dissuade Arsenal, who have given Wenger close to £40m to spend – as well as use any cash he can generate through sales.

Gael Clichy also looks set for Spain in a £7.5m deal with Barcelona while Tomas Rosicky could return to Germany to either Borussia Dortmund or Stuttgart.
