Sven-Goran Eriksson is adopting a cautious stance over his interest in Swedish striker Johan Elmander, whose club Toulouse have already rejected a £7million bid from French champions Lyon.

The former England chief knows it would take a bid in excess of £8million to lure Elmander to Eastlands, but with new owner Thaksin Shinawatra pledging to back Eriksson to the hilt, those funds should be easy to acquire.

Eriksson told the Manchester Evening News: "Elmander is a very good striker and a very interesting player but that does not mean he will play for the Blues next season."
