Wolves are interested in signing Iceland international Birkir Bjarnason, according to Footbolti.net.

The Icelandic outlet report that Wolves are keen on the attacker, who can play in central midfield or on the wing.

Bjarnason, 28, currently plays for Swiss side Basel, and featured in the Europa League for the club last season.

The midfielder signed from Italian side Pescara last summer, and increased his profile with his performances at Euro 2016 for Iceland.

He netted against Portugal in their opener, and was a key player for the minnows as they knocked England out and reached the quarter finals.

At Wolves he would join fellow Icelander, Jon Dadi Bodvarsson, who signed earlier this month, and looks like being a key player under new boss Walter Zenga.

Footbolti.net report Wolves have sent scouts to watch Bjarnason in action, and saw him score in a match for his club last week, and were left impressed.

Basel are a high profile club in Switzerland and convincing Bjarnason to leave after just one season may not be easy, but with Bodvarsson on board, and new financial muscle, a deal is certainly possible.
