Wolverhampton Wanderers are quickly closing in on the signature of young Icelandic striker Bjorn Bergmann Sigurdarson.
The 21 year old has attracted much attention with his play at Lillestrom, but Wolves has quickly asserted itself as the frontrunner for the youngster's signature. New Wolves manager Stale Solbakken has made Sigurdarson one of his top targets for the summer, and is keen to try to bring the player to Molineux.
Sigurdarson made waves this year for the Norwegian club, scoring 11 goals in 13 games and quickly cementing himself among the most highly rated young strikers in Europe. Lillestrom have already accepted the fact that they will not be able to keep Sigurdarson for very long.
Wolves had reportedly made a “firm enquiry” into Sigurdarson's situation. Currently, talks are ongoing between the two clubs. Wolves will be keen to tie up these discussions as quickly as possible, so that any late interest in Sigurdarson from other clubs will not disrupt the discussions or lead the player to another club.
Sigurdarson joined Lillestrom in 2009, and managed only 4 goals in his first 55 games before absolutely erupting in his last season. He also made his first international appearance this year for the Icelandic national team.
