Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has distanced himself from continued speculation linking him with a summer move to Arsenal.

The veteran shot-stopper was a pivotal presence during the Cottagers' monumental run in the Europa League last season, when they made it all the way to the final of the competition.

In contrast, the inconsistent form shown by Manuel Almunia and Lucasz Fabianski for the Gunners had prompted speculation that manager Arsene Wenger could make a move for the Australia international after the World Cup.

Milan Chasing Hangeland

FULHAM’S giant defender Brede Hangeland is a shock target for AC Milan – if the Italians do not land Manchester United star Nemanja Vidic.

Starsport revealed last month that AC Milan made the acquisition of a world-class centre-back their top priority over the summer – particularly if they lose Thiago Silva, 25, to Chelsea.

Vidic, 28, is the man the Rossoneri want to lead their defensive revamp and they are prepared to splash out £20m on the Serbian hardman.
