Scouts from Sheffield Wednesday, Birmingham City and QPR were at Molde FK’s Europa League tie against Glenavon, as per a report by the Sheffield Star.
The Norwegian side have a number of players who are in demand at the moment. Representatives from Arsenal and Brighton and Hove Albion were also believed to be there as well.
Molde is the home to Erling Braut Håland, who has caught the eye of many European clubs. The 17-year-old striker broke into their first-team in 2017 and bagged 8 goals for them last season. The Norway Under-19 international is one who scouts would have been watching.
Sheffield Wednesday are keen to bring in some players over the coming weeks. Their manager, Jos Luhukay, is looking to put his own stamp on his Owls’ side and get them competing at the top end of the Championship next season.
Birmingham City, on the other hand, are also hoping to climb up the league table next season under Garry Monk. They avoided relegation to League One last season and are in need of a couple more signings to make them a force to be reckoned with in the next campaign. The Blues have so far signed Danish defender Kristian Pederson but want more acquisitions.
QPR are another fellow second tier side who had scouts at the Molde against Glenavon fixture. They are now managed by ex-Middlesbrough, England, Newcastle United and Derby County boss Steve McClaren and are expected to get busy in the transfer market over the next couple of weeks.
