Brede Hangeland has confirmed Fulham’s interest in Norway international team-mate Vegard Forren, revealing manager Martin Jol has asked him about the defender.

The 24-year-old centre-back has attracted a number of suitors with his displays for Norway and club side Molde, who were recently crowned league champions.

Forren has been regularly linked with a move away from Scandinavia, with speculation suggesting Everton are set to make a January move.

It appears, though, that David Moyes’ side face competition from Fulham after their captain Hangeland revealed he has been quizzed about his international team-mate.

“His name has come up,” Hangeland told TV2. “They asked me about him after the last international break, so of course I had to be honest and tell them he’s a very good footballer.

“It’s no wonder Fulham have noticed him, I’m sure he’s been noticed by others as well.

“I think it was the manager who mentioned it. He picks up on quite a few things.

“He asked me about Forren. I told him that he’s a good player, and that occasionally good players come out of Norway as well.

“I try to answer honestly when I’m asked about something. I’ve often answered that Scandinavian players aren’t good enough.

“But when it comes to Vegard Forren, I think he could be good enough for a career abroad. But if it’s now or in the future, only time will tell.”

Asked if he thinks he thought Forren would come to Fulham, Hangeland added: “We’ll see. I think if he did come, he’d do a good job.”
