Sunderland, Everton, Aston Villa and West Ham have all been keeping a close watch on the Icelandic international, though the Dutch side claim they have received no formal contact from any of the sides.

Heerenveen’s technical director, Johan Hansma, said: “We have not been contacted by any club yet for Alfred, but we understand he is in the spotlight.”

Sunderland are thought to be leading the pack having sent a scout to The Netherlands this weekend to see Finnbogason score in a 1-1 draw with Ajax at the Ansterdam ArenA.

The striker joined Heerenveen last summer from Belgian side Lokoren. He had initially struggled to adapt to the Jupiler League and spent the second part of last season on loan at Helsingborg in Sweden, where he nailed 13 goals in 22 games.
