Sky Report: Five Bundesliga sides keep tabs on Norwegian talent

Sky's German outfit reports that at least five German top-tier sides have their sights on 22-year-old Norwegian midfielder Hugo Vetlesen of FK Bodø/Glimt.
Already linked with a transfer to VfB Stuttgart this past January, Sky Germany now reports that Hugo Vetlesen of Norway's FK Bodø/Glimt is also arousing interest at capital city sides 1. FC Union Berlin and Hertha BSC. VfL Bochum and Borussia Dortmund are also said to be interested in procuring the 22-year-old's services, as per the pay channel. 

The recently first-time-capped international initially plays deeper in central midfield, but has recently enjoyed immense success as both a centralized attacker and even a winger. Vetlesen netted 16 goals and registered 12 assists in last year's Eliteserien. He's also accumulated four scorer points during his Norwegian club's most recent European campaign. 

The player's estimated market worth has shot up from €1.2 million to €4.5 million in the last twelve months. Although he recently with Glimt for another two years, the youngster is widely expected to make the jump to a bigger league this summer. Persistent inquiries from top-level Bundesliga sides may see him head south to the Bundesrepublik after the current campaign concludes.
