Agent: Rovers are keen on Seb
Sebastian Larsson’s agent has confirmed that Blackburn are interested in signing the Swedish midfielder, saying it’s a "logical" move.
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.
