Liverpool, Arsenal and Fulham are leading the race to sign AIK defender Alexander Milosevic, according to the Daily Mail.

The 21-year-old Swede has entered the final six months of his contract at the Friends Arena, and his agent Francesco Di Frisco is looking to negotiate a transfer to the Premier League.

Former Fulham boss Martin Jol scouted Milosevic extensively, but following his sacking from Craven Cottage, it's unclear whether the west Londoners remain interested in the player's signature.

Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers have also been mooted as admirers of the Sweden international, so a switch to the Emirates or Anfield is still a possibility for the centre-back.

Arsenal and Liverpool are both well stocked in that department though, with Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny and Thomas Vermaelen currently vying for a starting spot with the Gunners.

Martin Skrtel, Daniel Agger, Kolo Toure and Mamadou Sakho are all available options for Rodgers on Merseyside.

However, that has not prevented either Premier League club from being linked with a move for Milosevic, who has also attracted interest from AC Milan, Fiorentina, Celtic and Eintracht Frankfurt.
