Liverpool enter race to sign ‘next Zlatan Ibrahimovic’

Wonderkid Alexander Isak targeted by Reds

Liverpool are interested in signing Swedish wonderkid Alexander Isak, who is dubbed at the ‘next Zlatan Ibrahimovic’.

According to Spanish newspaper SPORT, Liverpool face competition from English champions Leicester, German superclub Bayern Munich, as well as Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

Having established himself in AIK’s title-chasing first-team, Isak has scored nine times in his 22 appearances for the club.

He impressed last year as part of Sweden’s squad for the U-17 European championship qualifiers.

‘He is a great potential, and I absolutely believe that he will go far,’ Isak’s AIK team-mate Obasi told Swedish outlet FotbollSkanalen.

‘If he concentrates and continues as he is, I think he can become Sweden’s next Ibrahimovic.

He has the potential, everyone can see it.’
