The transfer season is in full throttle and the rumors are coming fast and furious.
Hellas Verona center midfielder Emil Hallfredsson is gaining interest from an MLS team, says a source connected to Verona.
Hallfredson is a 29 year old Iceland international who has been staring for the Serie A side Hellas Verona. Know for his defensive prowess and his big frame (6"1'), the sources says an MLS team has watched him in person over the few weeks.
David Amoyal, a writer and translator for Gianlucadimarzio.com, one of the most trustworthy Italian sources says Hallfresson may be hard to sign.
"Hallfredsson said in late December, "I sincerely hope to continue at Verona, I have an expiring contract so let's see what happens."
In other possible transfer news, Anderlecht midfielder and Netherlands national team midfielder Demy de Zeeuw is being pursued by MLS as well.
This may short lived as he is on loan from Spartak Moscow and Anderlecht manager John Van den Brom has said that Demy can't leave the club in January. A summer move (after the World Cup) may make more sense.
