Agent: Rovers are keen on Seb

Larsson’s contract with Birmingham expired at the end of the season

and the 25-year-old’s availability has alerted plenty of clubs,

given he is now a free agent. Top clubs in Turkey and Greece are

reported to be targeting Larsson but his agent, Per Jonsson, says

he would prefer to stay in the Premier League. Stoke, Newcastle and

Sunderland are believed to have tabled offers, while Blackburn have

been mentioned as a possible destination given the club’s close

links with Jonsson’s agency Kentaro. “He wants to stay in England.

He loves it there,” Jonsson told Fotbollskanalen. “There are three

or four clubs in England that are very interested. “Blackburn is

one of them, absolutely. That’s logical considering Kentaro, but

Kentaro aside, the most important thing is that it feels right.”

Galatasaray have already signed Johan Elmander from Bolton this

summer and although reports claim they want his international

team-mate Larsson too, Jonsson revealed they would face competition

from domestic rivals anyway. “There aren’t that many other clubs to

choose from when I say that there is a top club from there (Turkey)

that is interested in Larsson,” added his agent. “I have told

Sebastian to focus on the national team now and we will sort things

out with a new club after that.” Larsson played for Sweden in

Friday’s 4-1 win in Moldova and they host Finland in another Euro

2012 qualifier on Tuesday.
