Arsenal target Johannsson admits - 'I've never thought about playing for the US'

AGF Aarhus star Aron Johannsson says he has never pondered the possibility of representing the USA.

The 21-year old striker was born in Alabama but has spent almost his entire life in Iceland before he moved to Denmark in 2010 and says the thought of playing for the US has never entered his mind.

But Johannsson, who has scored 11 goals in 11 Danish SuperLiga appearances this season and is attracting interest from Premier League giants Arsenal, could change his mind of Jurgen Klinsmann came calling.

"To tell the truth, I've never really thought about playing for the United States national team," Johannsson told the New York Times.

"I've lived in Iceland almost my whole life. I've always had it as a goal to play for the Icelandic national team. But if Jurgen Klinsmann calls me and says he wants me to play for the United States, then it would be pretty hard to say no."
