Barca chase Larsson deal
Henrik Larsson
Larsson wants a move to Spain
Barcelona are stepping up their pursuit of Henrik Larsson, according to the prolific Swedish striker's agent.

Rob Jansen told newspaper Aftonbladet: "There is certainly interest and Henrik is obviously glad and flattered. I am travelling to Spain for a meeting."

Larsson, in fine form for Sweden at Euro 2004, wants to play in Spain.

He denied on Thursday that he had already agreed a two-year deal with Barca, but said: "However, it would be great if it were true."

Larsson is available on a free transfer from Scottish champions Celtic where he played for seven years, scoring 242 goals in 315 appearances.

The 32-year-old has put himself in the shop window after coming out of international retirement to play for Sweden this summer.

He netted three goals in Sweden's three group games, to help the Scandinavians qualify for the last eight.

Barca are expected to offload Dutch forward Patrick Kluivert this summer and need to replace him.
