‘Groningen is now also rejecting Italian bid of more than ten million euros’

FC Groningen shows itself steadfast in its efforts to preserve Jörgen Strand Larsen. The Pride of the North has now also declined an offer from Salernitana, report Voetbal International and Norwegian media.
Earlier, Bologna and Middlesbrough made a bid for the 22-year-old striker. Salernitana is now interfering in the battle, but the Italians also immediately found out that Groningen will not be an easy negotiating partner. According to Nettavisen, a bid of more than ten million euros has been declined. VI nevertheless expects that the game is far from being played.
Strand Larsen signed for fourteen goals and two assists in 32 Eredivisie games last season. The 1.92 meter long Norwegian has thus been in the spotlight at the Italian and English clubs. Three compatriots are already active at Salernitana with Julian Kristofferen, Emil Bohinen and Erik Botheim. Tonny Vilhena also signed with the Serie A club on Wednesday.
Groningen is in a strong position. Strand Larsen still has a contract until mid-2024, with the option for another season. In 2020, the striker came over for more than one million euros from Sarpsborg from his native country.

FC Groningen is keeping all candidates for Jørgen Strand Larsen out so far, but the game is far from being played. Sources confirm that Salernitana is now also very serious for the striker, as Norwegian media reported earlier today.
