Kalmar forward David Elm has told the Swedish media he isn’t concerned their star player Marcus Antonsson will be leaving the club this summer. Antonsson is on the verge of joining Leeds United following reports he’s already passed his medical with the Championship side.
Speaking to Barometern, Elm was asked how Kalmar would deal with their leading goal scorer signing for Leeds United.
The Kalmar forward said the team will look after itself because he thinks there will be players who can come in to replace Antonsson. Elm revealed he isn’t that concerned his strike partner will be leaving because players exit clubs all the time.
“It tends to resolve itself. When someone leaves, another forward steps in. It has worked before and will do so again. We are not particularly worried about the squad,” said the Elm on his teammate joining Leeds United.
Earlier today we covered comments from Kalmar sporting director Thomas Andersson Borstam in which he confirmed a deal is close for Leeds United to sign Antonsson.
The forward will join Leeds United on a three-year contract for a fee which could rise to £2m.
