Well, the Swedish Beckham at least!
Rasmus Elm: Liverpool to Battle Everton for the ‘Swedish Beckham’
Everton, Man City and Liverpool may have to wait to secure the signature of Swedish starlet Rasmus Elm after his agent confirmed the player is to visit some of the interested clubs in the next few days after picking up a suspension. The young star has already visited Everton and is rumoured to have also been to see Rafa Benitez at Liverpool too. Elm’s agent revealed, “We are going on a trip, but to where is something we wish to keep for ourselves.
“He is suspended and he now feels like visiting the clubs that are possible.” (Football Pools)
Kalmar have played down speculation bids of £6million have been tabled, stating they have rejected all offers to date.
“I don’t know where that figure has comes from,” explained sports director Svante Samuelsson. (Sky Sports)
Now what I have seen of the young Swede, mostly in you tube videos admittedly, looks good. He appears to have a great deal of potential and is already a fixture in the senior international set up and could well find himself in World Cup Finals action next summer if his Swedish side start to pull their collective fingers out.
Elm looks to have a great deal of talent, hence I guess the Beckham tag, and could well be an intelligent signing to pick up. Last season’s his performances helped his side Kalmar to clinch their first ever Swedish League title.
