The Icelandic star Aron Pálmarsson confirms interest from FC Barcelona.

Yesterday it emerged, that the Spanish top club FC Barcelona allegedly was interested in signing Telekom Veszprem's Icelandic playmaker, Aron Palmarsson.

Today the 26-year-old Icelandic national player confirms to the Icelandic newspaper mbl.is, that the Catalans show interest. According to the Icelandic newspaper, Palmarsson has received a contract offer from the Spanish giants Barcelona. Furthermore, THW Kiel in Germany and Paris Saint-Germain in France are allegedly also ready with a contract offer.

"I think I said in my first interview when I was 15 years old, that my dream club was Barcelona. Of course it is very exciting and I always wanted to play there. So I'm flattered that they show interest in me," said Aron Palmarsson to Morgunbladid yesterday.

"I'm just wondering what I should do. I will give me a good time to consider where I will play in the coming years. This is probably the biggest decision I have taken," said the Icelandic playmaker, who is under contract in Veszprém until the summer of 2018. And the Hungarians are also interested in extending the contract.
