Feyenoord interested in 18-year old


It is said in Dutch media Feyenoord is heavily interested in signing the 18-years old striker from Ogryte (Sweden). He is playing in Sweden's under-21 team and is believed to be making his debute for the Swedish squad within now and the European Championship Tournament.

Has anyone got an idea what this player should cost? Is he good or is he another player that Feyenoord can sell within one year because of bad performance?

Elmander

Elmander is a very good football player already, he has a bright future. But I think that Söderberg&Lagerbäck did the right thing by not taking Elmander to the Euro2000, he's a bit too young i think.

He has definitely not signed for Feyenoord, I would know if he did.

Elmander plays for Örgryte. Roma called him this week and he turned them down because he doesn't want to sit on the bench. Yesterday Ferguson from United called him but he turned them down too.

Elmander signed for Feyenoord yesterday. The transfer was around 3 million dollars.

Today one our most promising strikers for a long time, Johan Elmander, lands in Rotterdam, Netherlands to see his new club Feyenoord play against Ajax :happy:
Don't worry, soon he'll be playing himself :happy::star::happy:
25 million SEK was paid to his former club Örgryte IS :eek:
Note that the very talented brazilian, Alvaro Santos, did not succeed to play in Feyenoord, he was lent to HIF :rolleyes:
So it's gonna be tough for Elmander, but I think he'll make it, he seem to be ready for the life with the "big boys" :D

Was Santos ever on his way to ManU:confused:
Or is this on of you jokes :fero:
Well, if Santos wants to play in Europe he'll just have to pick where he left last year, a succes :)

NO NO NO!!!
Santos didn't have any offer from Man Utd but Elmander had.
Sir Ferguson actually called him in person to try to make Elmander go there.

Though this news is quite old already, but never been ''official'' though, Elmander comes on the right time.

Feyenoord really needs a striker, though they have just recalled a loaned player from the Dutch 2nd division, the Irish player David Connolly.

And now there also seems to be some trouble with the Portuguese passport of Brazilian Leonardo, who is also an offensive player.
Feyenoord has also loaned another striker, Somalia.

Though I am not for Feyenoord, could you tell me what kinda striker Elmander is?

Well, I don't know much more then that he's very promising, maybe one of the most talented players we had for a long time :happy:
Well, he's pretty good running with the ball, I don't think he's the at-the-right-place-at-the-right-time kind of striker, he is more the fighting type. But that's maybe cuzz he's young, so perhaps later he'll learn where and when stand to score :)

ANybody know about him?

He was hailed as the new wonderboy, but most people at Feyenoord seem to be shocked at his lack of performance... for the moment it is assumed that this is due to his lack of match fitness, because of the Swedish competition different seasonstart and end...

What do you think about Elmander? Is he really good?

I think Elmander is one of our most promising players for a long time. But maybe he was a bit too young to try his luck abroad :(
But of course it could be the change of season pace and everything.
Last season he was one of the leading strikers in the highest division in Sweden. But I think the step to Feyenoord was too big, I think he should've stayed one more season. Sure this gives him the channce to evovle more than in Sweden.
