The rumours linking us with a move for Rasmus Elm might actuallly not be so far off the mark. Roy Hodgson was in Sweden running the rule over one of Europe’s brightest young talents last night, according to the Sun.
Elm has already turned down a move to Fulham once – claiming last January that the time wasn’t right to him to leave the Allsvenskan – but Hodgson may be able to tempt him with the prospect of European football. The Fulham manager will certainly be interested if the price is as low as the £2.5m quoted in the article as Elm has the ability to become a star in the Premier League.
The Whites aren’t the only ones attracted by Elm’s potential. Everton showed the Swedish under-21 international around Goodison Park last move and were hopeful of concluding a deal, but the Kalmar midfielder has been busy mulling his next move and has kept his suitors waiting. Inevitably, there is late interest from Manchester City.
This Swedish journalist reckons that Fulham would be young Elm’s best choice.
