Spartak Moscow defender Martin Stranzl has been linked with a £1m move to Fulham in January.

The defender’s agent, Thomas Boehm said: ”Martin has said before that he is keen to play for one of the top clubs in England and Scotland. His goal is to play in the UK. He has had teams looking at him for many years now as he is an experienced international who has all the attributes for the British game.”

Stranzl, an Australian international centre back, is contracted to Spartak for another two and a half years and general director Valery Karpin said: ”If we get offers, everything will depend on conditions of agreement.”

Glasgow Rangers are also reportedly on the look-out for a commanding stopper after conceding a series of soft goals this season and see the 6ft 3in Stranzl as the solution.

Stranzl said: ”I want to get my future sorted out as soon as possible and hopefully this will be the case as I am desperate to play regular football again.”

Spartak Moscow manager Michael Laudrup last night offered a polite ”no comment”.
