Bolton boss Megson confirms Elmander interest

Bolton boss Gary Megson has revealed he would be interested in considering a move for Toulouse forward Johan Elmander, but only if the French side lower their valuation of the player to a more 'sensible' level.

The Sweden international was the subject of a reported approach from The Trotters back in January, but Megson baulked at the £21 million valuation slapped on the 27-year-old.

However, with Elmander's contract with the club expiring next summer the Ligue 1 side are likely to drastically lower their asking price, although a good showing at Euro 2008 may work in their favour if negotiations were to get underway.

"We'll see if it's more sensible," he said in The Bolton News.

"Sometimes, when somebody says they want £21m, they're just saying he is not for sale."
