Fulham face a fight to hold onto Mark Schwarzer after Bundesliga side Wolfsburg joined the race to sign the veteran goalkeeper, according to the People.

Arsenal have already made Schwarzer their top target as Arsene Wenger aims to alleviate his goalkeeping worries but Fulham are determined to hold onto their 37 year-old stopper. Schwarzer, who moved to Craven Cottage from Middlesbrough on a free transfer in 2008, starred in Fulham’s run to the Europa League final and the Whites are willing to renegotiate his current contract – and increase his wages – to ensure that he stays in SW6.

Wolfsburg boss Steve McClaren hopes to tempt Schwarzer, who speaks German, away to Germany after this summer’s World Cup. McClaren believes that Schwarzer’s experience could prove vital as he reshapes his squad and is confident of landing his man.
