Helsingborgs defender Walid Atta's agent claims his client is attracting interest from England and across Europe.

The 26-year-old's Swedish employers are understood to have rebuffed three approaches over the summer.

They are now bracing themselves for further advances during the winter transfer window, with Atta continuing to figure prominently on managerial shopping lists.

Informal approaches have already been made for the Saudi Arabia-born centre-half, with his representative admitting to having held talks with a number of clubs.

It now remains to be seen where he will end up come the close of the January window, with doors set to open across the continent.

"Clubs are calling regarding Walid all the time," Atta's agent Hasan Cetinkaya told Fotbolldirekt.se.

"I am in touch with clubs from England, France, Germany and Turkey.

"He has played well in the Europa League matches for Helsingborgs."
