Fulham - Arsenal Come Knocking Again

Fulham - Arsenal Come Knocking Again

Amidst all the talk of our Europa League clash with Wolfsburg tonight, a rather glum yet rather repetitive piece of news has arisen from the grapevine.

It would seem Brede Hangeland has done himself no harm in sticking by the Thames for another season, in the respect that the campaign he's had so far, has again attracted a keen Frenchman's eye. A keen Frenchman by the name of Arsene Wenger.

We've all heard the news before and it has got to a stage where I almost turned a blind eye to it upon glancing at the story, however, one must feel that the offer may be quite appealing to the International captain.

It's been proposed that Arsenal are planning a slight revamp with regards to their back line over the course of the Summer and Hangeland has already been touted as a perfect fill in for their new look defence.

Arsenal certainly did no harm in proving their defensive frailties with one Lionel Messi completely ripping them apart late Tuesday evening.

I hope though, with the departure of Chris Smalling to deal with, Hodgson will be more than reluctant to allow the huge Norwegian to clamber onto pastures new. Also, I must pleasingly add, when it comes to loyalty, Hangeland is no Jimmy Bullard.

I hope this article leaves you feeling a sense of Deja Vu. It has me.

these doesn't seem too probably, or at least i hope not... i think hangeland's a bit too old for wenger's liking... and if he was going to try to prise him away, i think it would have been last year as opposed to this year... but maybe it's just wishful thinking on my part...

Hopefully this is just lazy jorno stuff. Let be honest tho' why would Brede want to leave a club like Fulham for somewhere like arsenal talk about a step backwards. ;-)

Nah I wouldn't worry yourselves too much. Doesn't strike me as a Wenger signing. I think it's just a copy and paste job from a bored journo.

If he was going to leave, he would have gone last summer

Seems to be less buzz about Hangeland this season, in general, so I'm a little surprised to hear anything. I agree with Deuce, though. I think he would've gone last summer if anything was going to happen. You never know. Hard for a club like ours to turn down big money offers.

wenger is running out of time. I dont think brede is will go, he is realistic and knows he has a longer career at fulham. brede would be a bit player to fill a gap until a more permanent centre back was created or found......but who knows, eh?
