Wolves’ Jorgen Strand Larsen on emulating Haaland and Odegaard

The Norwegians are not doing too badly in the Premier League at the moment, with the likes of Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard and goalscoring sensation Erling Haaland – and new Wolves recruit Jorgen Strand Larsen will be hoping to follow in their footsteps.

Larsen admitted to having spoken to his teammates before arriving at Molineux.

On joining close friend Haaland in England, he admitted: “I’m really excited and hopefully I can score here against him and we win 1-0!

“That’s one of my goals, for sure. He’s an incredible player and I’m lucky to play with him in the national team. I hope we meet many times in the Premier League.

“I spoke to some of my Norway teammates before I signed and we have a good connection in the national team and I have some friends there who are stars in the Premier League, so we talked about it a bit.

“But it was down to me, it was my decision, and I’ve had good contact with Wolves for a long time, and they really made me feel comfortable, and that was my final decision. Coming here and seeing the stadium, seeing the facilities, it’s just making it even better.

“I’m very confident. I learned a lot from my two years in Spain. I had a bit of a difficult first year, and then the second year was really good, scoring goals, making assists and making an impact in games, and that’s what I want to continue doing here.
