The Rumour

Arsenal have made an £8m bid for Fulham centre-back Brede Hangeland.

The Source: (Daily Mirror)

The Analysis

Brede Hangeland is a greatly improved player from the one who first arrived at Craven Cottage and looked out of his depth. Roy Hodgson clearly knows how to get the best out of his defensive minded players and the Fulham boss will be loathed to lose him but if Arsene Wenger does put in an offer i am sure that the club will not stand in the Norwegian’s way.

Given the paucity of the Arsenal defence and the likely departure of both William Gallas and Mikel Silvestre the club does need to beef up it’s backline and the giant Cottagers man could be just the ticket.

The Likelihood

Hangeland to Arsenal: Very possible.
