Crystal Palace, Fulham, West Ham United vying for Jacob Bruun Larsen

Crystal Palace, Fulham, and West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing 25-year-old versatile Danish attacker Jacob Bruun Larsen from Bundesliga club TSG Hoffenheim this summer.

According to a report by German outlet Kicker, Jacob Bruun Larsen might return to the Premier League in the summer transfer window. London clubs Crystal Palace, Fulham, and West Ham United are vying for the signature of the versatile TSG Hoffenheim attacker. The Bundesliga club will likely demand around €8.5 million to part ways with the 25-year-old.

The Jacob Bruun Larsen story

Jacob Bruun Larsen has returned to TSG Hoffenheim after a decent loan spell with Burnley. While the Dane was one of the best players for the Clarets and scored seven goals in 36 outings, they could not remain in the Premier League.

A native of Lyngby, the 25-year-old spent most of his formative years at his hometown club, Lyngby BK, before graduating from the youth division at Borussia Dortmund. However, Bruun Larsen struggled to stamp his authority at Signal Iduna Park, embarking on two loan spells before joining Hoffenheim.

The Danish international might not have a long-term future at TSG Hoffenheim, with the Bundesliga club open to entertaining offers of around €8.5 million to sell him in the summer transfer window. A return to the Premier League might be on the cards, with Crystal Palace, Fulham, and West Ham United vying for his signature.

London calling?

Crystal Palace’s interest in Jacob Bruun Larsen is understandable. The Eagles are scouring the market for a long-term replacement for Michael Olise, who has joined Bayern Munich. The versatile TSG Hoffenheim attacker has thus emerged as a viable target. As for Fulham, they have lost Bobby De Cordova-Reid as a free agent.

In addition, Willian faces an uncertain future at Craven Cottage, compelling Fulham to search for a wide attacker, with the Dane being an option worth considering. Meanwhile, West Ham’s interest in Bruun Larsen stems from the uncertainties surrounding the long-term future of Lucas Paqueta.

Crystal Palace, Fulham, and West Ham should have the funds to afford a move to secure Jacob Bruun Larsen’s services, considering he will cost only €8.5 million. So, it will be interesting to see if the versatile 25-year-old Danish attacker returns to the Premier League in the summer transfer window.
