According to The Scottish Sun, Bolton Wanderers are interested in Hearts striker Bjorn Johnsen. The article states:

"BJORN JOHNSEN could be set for a switch from Hearts to Bolton. Sources down south suggest Trotters boss Phil Parkinson is weighing up a move for the striker, who made his debut for Norway last month.

Johnsen looked set for the exit door after his bust-up with Jambos boss Ian Cathro during the clash with St Johnstone in May. He has also been attracting interest after making his international bow in games against the Czech Republic and Sweden.

Kyle Lafferty’s arrival at Tynecastle this week now looks set to signal his departure. Hearts could command a fee for the 25-year-old after he signed a three-year deal when he joined last summer."

Johnsen, 25, joined Hearts last summer. The Norwegian international scored 7 times in 37 games last season. Interestingly, Johnsen was born in New York City, and was raised in the USA in North Carolina.

Johnsen opted to play for Norway though, and made his debut this month. Johnsen has played club football in Norway, Spain, Portugal and Bulgaria prior to playing in Scotland.
