Gossip: John Arne Riise returns as Micah Richards could move

More gossip flying around today that Fulham could be close to signing Roma full back John Arne Riise.

has started his interest in the defender following the news that current left back Carlos Salcido, a Mexican international, is homesick and wants to return to a country closer to home.

The 30 year old former Liverpool man is about to enter his final year on his current deal with the Italians and thoughts are that the club will be more than happy to sell the Norwegian this summer and look to re-invest his transfer fee into a younger player that will be able to offer a longer service to the club.

Riise almost became a Fulham player back in 2000 after interest from the club to sign the defender from then parent club Monaco but the Norwegian opted to complete a move to Liverpool instead

Also a number of top European clubs are keeping a very close eye on Manchester City right back Micah Richards with a potential interest in signing the English player this summer.

There are three Premier League clubs reported to be tracking the strong right sided defender, including Chelsea, Liverpool and Arsenal but they will face a stern challenge from Italian giants Juventus as they too look to improve their defence

Richards is thought to be earning £50,000 per week at the moment but with a host of big names at the club, his wage is dwarfed by the likes of Carlos Tevez and Edin Dzeko and now rumours are speculating that he will either ask the club for a pay increase or the chance to leave the club this summer
