The Norwegian is currently on loan at FC Lyn and is widely expected to sign a permanent deal for the Oslo outfit, but confirmed that he has talked to sports director Stefan Andreasson.
If Tessem does decide on a move to Elfsborg he will be reunited with former Southampton team-mate Anders Svensson - who will return to the Boras club at the end of the season.
"Elfsborg is certainly an interesting alternative," Tessem told Boras Tidning.
"If I move to Sweden, it's much thanks to Anders [Svensson].
"We have the same ideas about football, but unfortunately didn't get to play much together the last few years," claimed Tessem.
"During the reign of Glenn Hoddle, it worked very well, but after Strachan took charge, the situation changed completely.
"I have never really got the chance since then and just want to move.
"The starting point has been that I shall stay home in Oslo, but I don't exclude anything, although England is a finished chapter."
