Fulham are interested in Portsmouth goalkeeper David James as a potential replacement for Arsenal target Mark Schwarzer - report

Fulham are thinking about making a move for Portsmouth goalkeeper David James with Arsenal ramping up their interest in Mark Schwarzer.

The Gunners see the 37-year-old, who has also drawn interest from Wolfsburg, as a major upgrade to Manuel Almunia and Lukasz Fabianski, according to the Daily Mail.

The Australian international has a year remaining on his current Fulham deal and is looking to hold talks with the club after returning from the World Cup this summer.

Schwarzer has expressed his concern with the status of Roy Hodgson at Fulham and a move to Arsenal would give the Australian a chance to play at an elite club.

The Cottagers would ask for about £4million for the goalkeeper and are expecting Schwarzer to depart as they have already started looking into finding a replacement.

James, an England international, among the candidates to move to Fulham.

Despite the fact that Tottenham Hotspur are interested in the 39-year-old Englishman, a move to the Cottagers would give James a chance to play on a regular basis in the Premier League after Portsmouth were relegated to the Championship this past season.
