Everton eye Hangeland move
As a result, the Norwegian international - who has featured 53 times for his country - has been linked with moves to Aston Villa, Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal during the close-season.
The player has stated on more than one occasion that he is happy to stay at Fulham, while Gunners' boss Arsene Wenger revealed last week that he would not be making a move for the stopper.
However, the defender may now be the subject of a big-money bid from David Moyes' Toffees, as the Merseysiders search for a replacement for Joleon Lescott, who has joined Manchester City for a fee in excess of £20 million.
The Goodison Park outfit have also been linked with Arsenal's Philippe Senderos, Portsmouth's Sylvain Distin, David Wheater of Middlesbrough and Stoke City's Ryan Shawcross.
