Former Primavera striker Strand Larsen closing in on €30m Premier League move

By Isak Möller -

The former Milan Primavera striker Jørgen Strand Larsen is closing in on a €30m move to Premier League club Wolves, according to a report. The Rossoneri, therefore might have some regrets about letting him go. 

Strand Larsen joined Milan’s Primavera side ahead of the 2017-18 season and he bagged five goals in 30 appearances. It was only a season-long loan, though, and the Rossoneri decided not to redeem the 24-year-old at the end of the season.

The Norwegian striker thus returned to Sarpsborg before joining Dutch side Groningen in 2020. Two years later, he joined Celta Vigo and this past season was very successful for him, bagging 13 goals and three assists for the Spanish side.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Strand Larsen is now just one step away from joining Wolves in a deal worth €30m. Talks are still ongoing on the contract but it’s expected that an agreement will be reached between the parties.

Milan might have some regrets, but it’s not aways easy to determine the true potential of a young player. The Milan Futuro project should certainly help keep hold of some players, especially those that become too old for the Primavera.

  1. He was with us 6 season ago. That means he need 6 season of continue playing to reach his height right now. And he won’t get that at Milan. Also, his best season is currently just 13 goals…

    So there’s no regret at all.

    1. Neither do I think that there should be regrets but he has actually done well long before in Holland as well but you win some and you lose some that’s the name of the game.

    2. Your league is a million miles away from the premiership and on a par with our league one, many teams in your league would struggle in the championship, it will be interesting how he does but should do well with much better players around him.

      1. if you seriously think serie a is on par with league one you are well beyond daft.

        I guess denmark is better than england then because you certainly deserved to lose against us last week.

        1. “I guess denmark is better than england then because you certainly deserved to lose against us last week.” LMAO 😂

          1. Thought if anything that would shut him up and make him reconsider whether it was smart messing with us 😀

      2. Your league is just City and Arsenal at the moment, don’t get it twisted my friend, we saw how crap your top clubs are. Our mid table guys are making finals every season and your guys fail. Don’t kid yourselves.

      3. Italian clubs have reached 5 of the last 6 UEFA Finals, how is that on par with Ligue 1? Over the past 2 seasons, Serie A vs EPL matches were more or less an equal split, this season Atalanta thrashed Liverpool, Roma thrashed Brighton and Milan defeated Newcastle, while Liverpool won an irrelevant tie, already 0-3 down at Atalanta and 2 years ago Chelsea beat Milan, Man City narrowly beat Inter, Napoli, Inter and Liverpool all traded wins (although Napoli thrashed Liverpool 4-1), and West Ham narrowly beat Fiorentina. The gap has narrowed significantly now that EPL clubs are under financial scrutiny, as Italian clubs have been for 20 years. The EPL has more money, better teams, better stadiums and better players, yes, but it is not a million miles away from Serie A.

    1. 30m for that guy is way too much. He’s worth 10-15 maximum. Just because he has an impact in Spain doesn’t necessarily mean he’s going to do great elsewhere. Let’s not forget Samu Castillejo, top prospect from Spain, turns into a dud when faced with real defenses.

  2. This is just how these things work out. Alot of it is just gambles. Might never know what you’re giving up. Who knows, Nsiala could be the next to go for a big fee from Rangers or he could flop. Same with any other youth
