Kerim Mrabti may have played his last match for Djurgårdens IF, report Aftonbladet in their Monday edition.
With transfer claims building over the past week, the player has made no secret of the temptation he has to leave Swedish football behind him.
A few days ago we covered claims from Belgium that Newcastle United had offered €1.3m in the winter window, and Udinese €1m. The reason for Belgian interest was Club Brugge being interested in signing the player.
There was no suggestion Newcastle would be willing to offer the same amount this summer, despite how it’s later been covered by some English sources.
Aftonbladet reference interest from Newcastle and Club Brugge, with the Swedish newspaper quoting Mrabti as saying: “Clearly, I have explained to Bosse (Andersson, Djurgårdens IF sports director) that I have a chance to go abroad now. This is my fourth year here and I feel I’ve done a lot for the club.”
It’s clear the 24 year old feels his time is now, and a relatively big transfer could be on the cards. Club Brugge would appear to be the most interested at the moment, and that could be the better move, with little guarantee of meaningful game time at Newcastle United.
