Marcus Antonsson is attracting interest from the Bundesliga after an excellent first season in Sweden.

The former Rovers attacker returned to his homeland after his spell at Ewood Park and scored 11 times in 21 appearances to help current club Malmo to the Swedish title, and in to the knockout stages of the Europa League.

That form has seen Antonsson attract interest from the German top flight, according to Swedish outlet FotbollDirekt, as well as teams from Turkey and Switzerland.

But they say the Swedish club would want at least 4million Euros were they to sell the attacker who has two years left to run on his current contract after signing from Leeds United last summer.

Antonsson scored eight times during a season-long spell with Rovers.

The 27-year-old played 34 times in all competition to help them out of League One, which included a run of five goals in five games in November 2017 when he was named PFA player of the month. 

He still had a year left to run on his contract at Elland Road, but instead chose to return to Sweden where he previously enjoyed a goal-laden spell with Kalmar before joining Leeds in 2016.

Malmo are reported to have paid around 2million Euros for Antonsson last summer, with Rovers having previously had the option to make his move to Ewood permanent, for a fee of around £1million.
