Marcus Olsson wants to join Blackburn star Martin in England

Marcus Olsson wants to join twin brother Martin Olsson, the Blackburn Rovers defender, in England.

Marcus Olsson, a left winger, has been in impressive form this season for Halmstads in his native Sweden.

He has attracted interest from German and Dutch clubs this summer but says he would prefer a move to England.

The 22-year-old told BBC Sport: "Martin and I possess the same physical assets so I think I would adapt pretty fast to the intensity of the English style.

"I've been inspired by Martin's progress. I'm more of an attacking player and like to run at defenders but, while he has improved his offensive play, I have improved the defensive side of my game.

"We play in different positions but I am proud of how he has established himself at Blackburn. I might go to another country first but my goal is to play in the Premier League."

His agent, former Sheffield United defender Jonas Wirmola, added: "Teams from Holland and the Bundesliga called earlier this year with concrete interest but a move to England is Marcus's priority."
