Barcelona forward Eidur Gudjohnsen may be set for a return to the Premier League, according to his father.

The former Chelsea and Bolton player failed to cement a regular place in the Barcelona side last season and is said to be considering his future.

"One Premier League club has shown a lot of interest in Eidur," father and agent Arnor Gudjohnsen told BBC Sport.

"He would certainly be interested in a move back to England, but he is not going to rush into making a decision."

He added: "Eidur and his family are settled in Barcelona and he has two years left on his contract, but his chances were limited last season."


Reports in England suggested that West Ham and Newcastle were interested in the player.

The 29-year-old moved from Chelsea two years ago for about 8m, but injuries and competition for places in attack have limited his chances in the first team.

Last season, Gudjohnsen was moved to a midfield role by coach Frank Rijkaard, although he rarely completed 90 minutes in a match.

The Icelandic player, along with a host of other players, is believed to be surplus to new coach Pep Guardiola's plans for next season.
