Every cloud has a silver lining, according to the age old saying. For Martin Olsson the cloud was Blackburn Rovers miserable relegation campaign, and the cloud the interest from top clubs, that he now finds himself on the receiving end of.
Chelsea, the new Champions of Europe, are thought to be eyeing up the full back as they look for the long term replacement of Ashley Cole.
The 24 year old looks to be one of a few key players to be heading for the Ewood Park exit door, with Yakubu and Junior Hoilett making similar noises.
The Swede will be representing his country at Euro 2012, and will probably play against Ashley Cole on June 15th.
In a story reported by Sky Sports, Olsson is thought to have said to the Daily Mail: 'I know there has been a lot of interest and I have heard about Chelsea.
'It proves that I have done well this season.'
Olsson made 31 appearances, in all competitions, for Steve Kean's men last campaign.
