The Icelandic star has been attracting interest from Newcastle United in recent months with Alan Pardew’s side said to be lining up a summer bid. Greek champions Olympiacos are also keen on the player and have been monitoring his progress in the Eredivisie. Finnbogason has had a terrific season with Heerenveen, finishing as the league’s top scorer with 29 goals and making 10 assists in 31 matches.
Herenveen chief Vonk has recently admitted that he has received an offer from Olympiacos but it does not meet the Dutch club’s standards. “There is an offer on the table from Olympiacos. However, it does not cover us for Finnbogason. To be honest, it is not enough for us yet,” Vonk to Leeuwarden Courant.
However, the former South African international goalkeeper admits that talks will continue and hinted that his club could be interested in selling. “It seems to have laid a base for the start of negotiations for the player. We, at this point, take it as an interest and not as anything else and we will see what happens in the future. “There are other teams interested but maybe the case will go through until the World Cup, maybe even after that,” Vonk concluded.
