Andreas Schjelderup currently plays for FC Nordsjaelland where he has scored five goals in 10 Superligaen appearances this season.

Schjelderup moved to Nordsjaelland in 2020 from Arsenal’s Europa League group opponents Bodo/Glimt on a free transfer and is now valued at just £3.6m with a contract that expires in 2024.

Arsenal and Liverpool are not the only sides to be interested in the youngster, with his talent catching the eye of scouts from Spain, Italy and Germany.

Nordsjaelland are said to want around £17.5m for him.
