With the transfer deadline looming, Feyenoord are eyeing a late bid for Strasbourg's Swedish international midfielder Pontus Farnerud.
Having offloaded the likes of Alexander Ostlund and Hossam Ghaly to Southampton and Tottenham respectively, the Kuip outfit have targeted a loan deal for Farnerud with the option to make the deal permanent at a later date.
The 25-year-old admits he is flattered by the speculation and would be prepared to leave the Ligue 1 strugglers should the Eredivisie side firm up their interest.
"I am ready to go at short notice," Farnerud told Helsingborg Dagblad.
"Thus far it's nothing serious, it's my agent who is in touch with Feyenoord."
