Rosenborg and Lyn are battling it out for Bjorn Tore Kvarme.
Rosenborg have confirmed they have offered Bastia defender Bjorn Tore Kvarme a contract.
The Norwegian champions are hoping to fend off competition from Lyn in order to land the experienced defender.
Kvarme expects to be released from his contract at Bastia in order to link up with a new club before the Tippeliga commences in April.
Lyn are also keen on Southampton's versatile performer Jo Tessem.
"We are working hard to get Bjorn Tore Kvarme," Lyn director Morgan Andersen told Nettavisen.
"He is our first priority.
"It seems like it's between us and Rosenborg.
"If we get Kvarme and Jo Tessem in place during the spring, then we feel we have a good side for next season."
