VIDEO: Town target Bj�rn Bergmann Sigurdarson likened to Zlatan Ibrahimovic

IPSWICH Town have sent scouts to monitor an Icelandic forward who has been compared to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Highly-rated Bj�rn Bergmann Sigurdarson, 21, who plays in Norway, is rumoured to be interesting Paul Jewell but the Blues boss faces strong competition for his signature.

Everton, Anderlecht and Wolves are all rumoured to be interested in the Lillestrom striker who yesterday scored a last-minute winner against Sogndal – his 11th goal in the last five games.

Sigurdarson is seen as the country’s brightest young talent and has been compared to a young Ibrahimovic and former Manchester United forward Solskjaer.

The striker last week came to international attention after he was allowed to net direct from a kick-off following a freak incident which saw league opponents Brann score from inside their own half when they were meant to be passing the ball back following an injury.
