Yes, we’ve been linked with yet another centre back!
BREDE HANGELAND has been offered £50,000 a week to keep him out of the clutches of the Premier League big boys.
Liverpool, Everton, Manchester City and Aston Villa – who are all desperate to sign central defenders – have expressed interest in the Fulham star.
Hangeland can double his pay at Craven Cottage but is biding his time to see if a big-money bid is made for him. Arsenal reassured Fulham chief Roy Hodgson last week that they are not interested in signing the tough-guy central defender.

If as this report suggests, Arsenal have pulled out of the race to sign the giant Norwegian and with Man City almost certain to finally land Joleon Lescott in the coming weeks that would make Rafa the firm favourite to win the race for Hangeland if he is indeed interested.
The Fulham centre back is pretty solid, if not spectacular, and the Cottagers are thought to be asking for a fee in excess of £10m, it may be an expensive signing to make and if we do indeed have that sort of cash it would be more wisely invested in bringing in another attacking option in my view.
