Premiership clubs are circling for Groningen striker Markus Berg.

Sunderland, Blackburn Rovers and Aston Villa are among English clubs to have been linked with the Sweden U21 star.

It is believed that Eredivisie side FC Groningen are after a fee of €10 million (£8.7m) for the talented marksman, which has not put off a number of English clubs according to Berg's agent Martin Klette.

"There are clubs that have been calling my people and (agent) Soren Lerby's people," Klette told Expressen.

"It is primarily Premier League clubs. We shouldn't make any big conclusions on that right now, but of course it is positive."
