Vikings status uncertain – try for goalie
There has been a storm at the Vikings over superstar David Brekalo after the club has yet to accept an offer from MLS club Orlando City.
The Slovenian wants to go to the United States, but Viking is still not satisfied with the payment plan proposed by the Americans.
Nettavisen is also aware that there is tangible interest in Patrick Gunnarsson from Belgium. The Icelandic goalkeeper wants a move from Vikings and would not mind moving already this winter. The transfer window in Belgium ends in just two days, so transfers could become difficult immediately.
The conflict is escalating. Now Brekalo is shooting at the Vikings
In the past, both Gent and Anderlecht were said to have shown interest, but sources in Belgium have now told Netavisen that Kortrijk has made an offer for the goalkeeper this week and that the Jumbo Table want to make a transfer this week..
It is unclear how Viking will handle this matter at this time.
Rumors that Gunnarsson might want to move on began circulating on social media at the weekend.
In addition, local newspaper Stavanger Aftenblad reported that Zlatko Trebek wants to move on and that there is interest in the winger in several countries.
Fires against the club: – He will not do it again
Lillestrom is not giving up on Diop
LSK is still looking for several new players ahead of next season with its new Swedish coach Andreas Georgesson in the head coach's chair.
At the end of December, Nettavisen can reveal that LSK have identified AaFK striker Mokhtar Diop as a key target this winter. This plan will remain constant, and last month, LSK made several offers to sign the Senegalese, who has just turned 19 years old. AaFK knows they have good negotiating cards with an agreement until 2026.
AaFK sporting director, Björn Erik Meyland, confirmed on Monday to Sunnmørsposten that they have received several new offers for players in the team. LSK still have to be determined to reach an agreement and secure Diop, Nettavisen has been informed.
Demands for change in Norway: – The only country in the world that does not have a law
Marcus Carlsback (23) is also a player Lillestrom has shown interest in this winter. According to the local newspaper, LSK have also made an offer for the midfielder.
And Kitulano fishing
Another player on Åråsen's wish list is Molde Erik Kitulano. From what Nettavisen understands, the 26-year-old is a player whose interest LSK could quickly identify after the international window closes. Molde brought on Mats Müller-Dalli and Halldor Stenvik to strengthen the midfield, opening the way for Kitulano to move forward.
In addition, Molde is looking for a new striker, a position in which Kitolano played a lot last season. Nettavisen understands that Serie A professional Erik Botheim has recently been discussed as a replacement at Molde. The striker is on his way away from Italy and has been reported to be close to a move to Malmö FF in Sweden.
Two offers from LSK for Brazilian midfielder Windersson, who belongs to Swedish side Varnamo, and who was previously mentioned by Romrics Blad, were also rejected. The same newspaper reported later on Tuesday that LSK had also made an offer to buy Kitulano, but the clubs had not agreed to it.
LSK also wants to reach out to several Nigerian Test players who have trained with the club recently.
Many alternatives are underway in Vålerenga
On Monday, neither Andre Ilicic nor Ennio Petri were in place when Valerenga trained at Ekeberg in Oslo after returning home from a training camp in Tenerife at the weekend.
In addition to internal turmoil over player salaries, there are also squad changes underway before the club begins the Opus League in 2024.
As Netavicin wrote on Monday, Petri is on his way to Poland to complete his move to Krakow. While Ilicic trained himself while waiting for Valerenga to reach an agreement with a club regarding the transfer. As of now, Cardiff's Welsh side are in the best position with just a few days left before the window closes in Europe's top leagues.
Vålerenga is in a multi-million conflict with players
But there are still many players in Valerenga who have an uncertain future.
Finn Daniel Hakans is clear about what he thinks:
-I find it exhausting. I'd be lying if I didn't say I wanted to go somewhere else. It's stressful, but I think I have a relatively good dialogue with the club. “So I think we can solve some things,” Hakans tells Netavicin.
Until recently, there was only a loan offer from Dutch club Heerenveen on the Valerenga table, but that shouldn't be interesting enough. Clubs in Belgium, Italy, Austria and Sweden have also inquired about the Finn's situation.
– time is running out. “I just hope something works out,” says Hakans, who trained as usual on Monday.
There must also be uncertainty regarding Stefan Strandberg's football future at Valerenga.
Nettavisen learns: Several bids to buy Vålerenga-spiss
OBOS clubs are fighting for the top spot
TV 2 and Moss Avis reported on Monday that a bid for Moss striker Claudio Braga has been accepted by AaFK.
From what Nettavisen understands, Kongsvinger is also fighting for the Portuguese.
At the moment, Moss will not fully agree with any of the clubs, but a framework of around three million Norwegian kroner has been discussed.
Stabæk is also in the Obos League next season and over the winter inquired about HamKam player Henrik Udahl without the clubs having reached an agreement yet.
