TRANSFERS FC Midtjylland want to make an attempt to acquire Kristoffer Olsson permanently from Anderlecht. So reports Danish newspaper Ekstra Bladet. The club has a €4 million purchase option, but hopes to take advantage of Anderlecht's need for cash to acquire Olsson more cheaply.
Since Olsson arrived at Midtjylland on loan in the summer, he immediately emerged as a contributing player for the team. The club is therefore keen to keep him. They think the €4 million purchase option is a bit high, but also in Denmark they know Anderlecht needs money. So they hope to get Olsson for around 3 million euros.
Ektra Bladet knows that Olsson earns around €650,000 a year at Anderlecht. Not an unkind salary considering Vincent Kompany saw in him a defining figure upon his arrival. Midtjylland will find it hard to match that salary, it sounds.
Whether Olsson will move to Midtjylland permanently will have to be seen in the coming months. The club is currently renting him from Anderlecht until the end of this season. The final word, of course, lies with the player himself. He still has a contract with Anderlecht until 2025.
