Brann starlet Finne in demand across Europe

Sky Sports understands a host of Premier League clubs are tracking Norwegian hot-shot Bard Finne.

SK Brann starlet Finne is regarded as one of the best young prospects to emerge from Scandinavia in recent years.

The 18-year-old burst onto the scene last season with Brann, scoring four goals in nine appearances for the Norwegian side.

Finne is also a regular in the Norway youth sides and is tipped for a call-up to the senior squad in the near future.

The exciting forward's performances have not gone unnoticed, with clubs across Europe keeping tabs on his progress.

All the Premier League's top guns, including Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal are all thought to have watched Finne in action over the last year.

Clubs from Germany, Italy and France are also thought to be keeping a watching brief on Finne as Brann face a fight to keep hold of their prize asset.

Finne's current contract expires in December, but Brann are bracing themselves for bids for the player this summer when his suitors would only have to pay a minimal compensation fee for his services.

ow is the time for Allardyce to finally get a chance at a big club please. He is likely to have a number of great offers for his services this summer, but who will he choose? Will it be Liverpool, Real Madrid, Dortmund or Man City?

thought exactly this when the Match of the Day pundits were peddling this line. Is it really not okay for fans of a club to have some ambition these days then?
