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.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
