Fulham eye Arsenal outcast - Exclusive

Arsenal outcast Philippe Senderos is in line for a move to Fulham after the World Cup.
Swiss defender Senderos, 25, is expected to be a key player for his country in South Africa.
But he is surplus to requirements at Arsenal after failing to convince Emirates boss Arsene Wenger.
Senderos was even loaned to Premier League rivals Everton in January for whom he made just three appearances.
But Fulham need another centre-back this summer as Chris Smalling is going to Manchester United.
And the Craven Cottage club now hope to tie up a permanent transfer for Senderos after the World Cup.
Senderos, who is out of the contract at the Emirates, is certain to leave Arsenal this summer and would jump at the chance to move across London.
He could even form part of a swap deal for Fulham keeper Mark Schwarzer who is wanted by the Gunners. But Senderos' potential move to Fulham may be affected if manager Roy Hodgson quits for Liverpool.
Senderos signed for Arsenal in December 2002 from Swiss side Servette and was tipped for great things.
But he fell out of favour with Wenger and joined Italian club AC Milan on a season-long loan in August 2008 and played just twice for Arsenal this term before being loaned out again.
