Premiership clubs see Sporting Braga striker Linz star for Austria

Austrian striker Roland Linz is closing in on a dream move to the Premiership after scoring twice in front of five watching English clubs as Austria ended their Euro 2008 warm ups with a 5-1 win over Malta.

The Sporting Braga hitman has been in fine form this season in Portugal and will be looking to expand his growing reputation as he spearheads the host nation's attack this summer.

A spokesman for Linz's management team, FN Sports, commented, "There has been interest in Roland from the Premiership and a number of clubs were watching him again at the Malta game, but he is focused on the Euro's at the moment and we will see what happens after the tournament."
