Jonas Olsson -interested in a move to Everton
The Swedish center-back has played extremely well in the Eredivisie this season, and in both January and March this year, there were reports in Sweden that Newcastle were interested in the player.
Olsson was also linked with a transfer to Middlesbrough and has just one year remaining on his contract.
Olsson seems set on moving to the English Premier league this summer, as he told Helsingborgs Dagblad:
“I know that they (Everton) have been to watch me,”
“The Premier League is something I have dreamt about since I was a child. Everton would be a fantastic club to join.”
“I feel I have developed everything in Holland. The physical side of my game has improved as well as when I am in possession.”
“It would be nice for Nijmegen to get a decent fee for me after spending three years here.”
Olsson has played 88 times for NEC Nijmegen and scored 4 times, but while he played 19 times for the Swedish Under-21 team, he has yet to play for the full Swedish side.
Jonas turned 25 years old in March and stands 6’4″ tall.
