Gudjohnsen set for Premier League return
Barcelona, Spain (Sports Network) - Barcelona have sparked a transfer scramble among Premier League clubs after confirming that Eidur Gudjohnsen is free to move on this summer.
West Ham, Aston Villa and Fulham have all been linked with moves for the former Chelsea and Bolton striker, who has spent two seasons in Spain.
The 29-year-old has struggled to climb in front of the likes of Samuel Eto'o, Ronaldinho, Lionel Messi and Thierry Henry for a starting place at the Camp Nou and could be in line for a return to England.
"(Sporting director) Txiki Begiristain is studying the topic with all the determination and our intention is to find a new place to help Gudjohnsen be happy again," revealed Barca director Rafael Yuste.
The Hammers are believed to be frontrunners to land the Iceland international after freeing up space in their squad with the sale of Bobby Zamora to Fulham earlier in the week.
