Premier League and Championship interest in Iceland starlet Arnor Traustason

HITC Sport understands Swansea, Aston Villa, Birmingham, Wolves and Reading are all interested in Arnor Traustason

A host of clubs are chasing Icelandic starlet Arnor Traustason, who is set to be one of the names to watch at this summer's European Championship, HITC Sport understands.

The 22-year-old, who can play anywhere across the front-line, is currently starring for Swedish champions IFK Norrkoping, who he helped to the title late last year.

Traustason, who is out of contract next year, has already attracted major attention from clubs across Europe and Austrian outfit Rapid Vienna have seen two bids in excess of £1million rejected in the past six-months.

The player himself is known to prefer a move to England, and now a host of clubs from the Premier League and Championship are now taking a keen interest in his progress - sources close to Norrkoping have told HITC Sport.

Swansea, Aston Villa, Birmingham, Wolves and Reading are all understood to be weighing up a move for Traustason - who has bagged three goals in six international appearances for his country.

And although he has only just broken through into Lars Lagerback and Heimir Hallgrímsson's squad - he is bring tipped to be a part of their starting XI in France this summer.
