The season may be over but the transfer rumours never end. Today the Record is linking Sporting with an apparent swoop for Bolton Wanderers forward Johan Elmander. The Lisbon-based paper goes on to say that only informal talks have gone on between the two parties, meaning little is decided yet.
Many in Bolton are resigned to the fact Elmander is likely to go this summer, he has also been linked with other Premier League clubs including Liverpool. His contract ends next year so it’s more than likely that should Bolton Wanderers receive a good enough bid that they will late the player leave.
It would be quite surprising should Johan Elmander be signed, although he is a good player his goal ratio (especially at Bolton) is not incredibly great and there is a general consensus with Bolton that he should probably get many more goals. He would not the kind of player that Sporting really need. Although perhaps he may well adapt better to the game in Portugal.
