WIMBLEDON have agreed a massive fee of around £2.8 million for Andreas Lund, even though manager Egil Olsen has been complaining that he has no funds to enter the transfer market.
Olsen has been seeking a new centre forward since losing John Hartson through a knee injury and Lund, his fellow compatriot, has always been high on his list of replacements.
Molde director of football, Olav Boksasp, has claimed the price is right for a player who has also attracted the attention of Tottenham, Perugia, Sporting Lisbon and Panathinaikos. The fee will surely stretch The Dons` resources, unless they are to sell another key member of their squad, such as Spurs-target Carl Cort.
Lund has flown to England to complete his medical and finalise personal terms in South London.
Olsen already has a large contingent of Scandinavians at Selhurst Park, including Trond Andersen, Kjetil Waehler, Tore Pedersen and Martin Andresen, and Lund would fit the bill to cover for the continued absence of Hartson.
