Bjorn Helge Riise is close to joining Fulham, according to the player's agent. The 26-year-old younger brother of former Liverpool full-back John Arne has made 85 league appearances for Lillestrom - netting 10 times - since arriving from FC Brussels in 2005, and has won 16 caps for Norway. And his impressive form over the past year is believed to have attracted interest from both Fulham and Manchester City, with the Cottagers now ready to seal a deal for the central midfielder - who can also operate on the right-wing - according to Riise's represetative, Tore Pedersen. "We are in talks with Fulham about a move," Pedersen told skysports.com. "I am having some meetings and hopefully I will have more news later." NEWS: Riise set for summer switch FULHAM FANS!
