"City have talked to my agent." Elm told Sportbladet.
"It's both fun and flattering that a big club like them show interest in me.
"I don't feel that it is negative that many clubs come to watch me. It's just a boost, it shows that I am on the right track."
Elm also suggested Everton remain in the running for his signature, adding: "I want to join a club where the coach gives me big confidence.
"I got a good impression of (Toffees manager) David Moyes. I don't close the door to any league, but the Premier League is more tempting than the Eredivisie.
"The overall picture is important, but the biggest club is not necessarily the right one for me."
