Dutch boss quashes Arsenal speculation

Fulham say there have been no enquiries for unsettled forward Dimitar Berbatov, reports the Independent.

The Bulgarian striker has been linked with a January move to Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger in the market for a back up to Olivier Giroud.

Berbatov’s agent said earlier this month that the former Manchester United forward was keen to leave Fulham.

Berbatov himself has done little to dampen the speculation, going as far as to post a video with the title ‘Berbatov could fire Arsenal to the title’ on his Facebook page.

However, Fulham have been keen to stress there has been no contact made by Arsenal regarding the 32-year-old.

Fulham manager Rene Meulensteen said: “No. There is no problem at all, he is a Fulham player.”

Arsenal fans will get to see Berbatov at close quarters this weekend, as Fulham travel to the Emirates.

It will also be a chance for Berbatov – whose contract runs out at the end of the season- show why the Gunners would be wise to sign him this month.

But Meulensteen insists the forward is fully focused on his current club.

“I know how he is and Berba sees this as an important game against Arsenal.”
