Everton Target Larsson Open To Premier League Return


Swedish International striker Henrik Larsson has revealed that he would be open to a return to the Premier League, with Everton linked to the former Manchester United and Barcelona player.

Larsson is currently a free agent after his deal with Swedish club Helsinborg ended, but despite reports suggesting the 37-year-old would retire from football, Larsson is tempted to have another crack at the Premiership.

Toffees boss David Moyes is desperate to bring a striker into Goodison Park in January, with Yakubu and James Vaughan out with long-term injuries for the Merseyside club and is understood to have made veteran Larsson a main winter transfer target.

Larsson has claimed that he is considering his options, but might favour a similar short-term deal at Everton to the one that took him to United on loan in 2007.

“I am a free agent and have not yet decided what to do next,” Larsson told the Daily Star.

The former Celtic player also revealed that he will not sign a new deal with Helsingborg unless there is a change in the way the club is run.

“I like Helsingborgs, but I want to see a change of attitude and in the way the club is run before I sign again,” he added.

“I have not completely closed my mind to the idea of going abroad again, so we will see what happens.”
