Aged 37 now, Larsson is a free agent after being out of contract with his former side Helsingborgs where, in his first stint at the club, scored 50 goals in 56 appearances, leaving for Dutch side Feyenoord in 1993 for four years before moving to Scottish giants Celtic, where he spent seven hugely successful seasons.
The former Swedish International is now a free agent, although he has had provisional talks with his former club Helsingborg about a return in March, there has been interest from at least two Premier League sides, with Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson and West Ham Utd manager Gianfranco Zola reportedly having enquired about his availability.
Larsson, who has already made a short-term loan spell in the English top-tier with Manchester United in 2007, could make a return to the Premiership on a short-term deal. Larsson's agent, Rob Jansen, confirmed the interest, but expects the veteran striker to move back to his former club when the Swedish football season starts in March, saying: “Premier League clubs are interested in Henrik, but we’ll negotiate a contract with Helsingborg.”
He would be an invaluable asset to either of Bolton or West Ham and I for one would be very happy to see him playing in the Premier League again.....Back To Home Page...
