Barcelona forward Eidur Gudjohnsen says he will almost certainly be returning to the Premier League this summer. The former Bolton and Chelsea striker has made 72 league appearances for the Catalans, scoring 10 times, since arriving in 2006 and was an unused substitute in the club's Champions League final success against Manchester United in May. But despite being under contract until 2010, Gudjohnsen is now expected to depart for around €5million, a fee that is believed to have interested several English sides, with Blackburn Rovers, West Ham and Tottenham Hotspur all linked with the forward in the past. And the Icelandic international, who made many of his 182 league outings for Chelsea from 2000-06 alongside current West Ham boss Gianfranco Zola, has admitted he would be interested in a reunion with the diminutive Italian at Upton Park. "Returning to England is probably inevitable. There is a lot of interest from the Premier League," he told the Daily Star Sunday. "I had a great time with Chelsea and Gianfranco and I know the game inside out. I know I would adapt easily to the football there."
