Even though Emil Bohinen was promoted to Stabæk’s first team in 2017, he had to wait until this year to make a mark, at least in Norway.

The 20-year-old finished the campaign with four goals and eight assists in 30 appearances in all competitions in 2019.

Sky Sports reported on Monday that Brighton & Hove Albion are one of the Premier League clubs interested in the midfielder, who is considered as one of the brightest prospects in his country.

Following Sky Sports’ claim of the Seagulls’ interest in the player, TV2 in Norway got in touch with Bohinen’s agent Stein Erlend Hoff for an update.

The Stabæk midfielder’s representative didn’t want to comment so much on his client’s links to Brighton, but did say: “I can say that it’s always nice with interest, but I’m so terribly boring that I don’t comment until things materialise.”

Bohinen signed a new contract with Stabæk at the start of this calendar year and his current deal with them expires in December 2020. His father, Lars Bohinen, represented Nottingham Forest, Blackburn Rovers and Derby County during his playing career.
