I’ve seen multiple German articles these last days, that talks about a possible move away from FC Nurnberg. Iceland just qualified for next years World Cup, and with Rúrik’s injury shortly before last years Euro Cup, he is looking to be a regular starter for his team. He takes nothing for granted, and will fight for his place in the Icelandic squad, that will be heading to Russia next year, but it’s hard when the FC Nurnberg coach is looking elsewhere for players and often leaves Rúrik out.
Rúrik’s contract expires in the summer 2018 and if FC Nurnberg want’s to earn a bit of cash, there could very well be a transfer on the way this winter.

I’m soooooo proud to see that Rúrik has been called up to the national team again. It really shows that hard work does pay off!! Congrats Rúrik!!
Iceland will play against Kosovo and Ireland on March 24th and March 28th.
There’s a few Danish articles floating around these days, saying a couple of Danish clubs are interested in Rúrik – He’s already played for Viborg, OB and FC Copenhagen – But Rúrik is only interested in playing for FC Copenhagen, because he has a lot of respect for the club and their fans, and was very well received when he played there.
The articles dosen’t say if FC Copenhagen is one of the clubs who are interested, but I’ll post more about this, if I come across more articles.
