Amel Mujanic is being ‘hunted’ by clubs in England and one of those is Leeds United, reports Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.
The 17 year old midfielder is playing for Malmo’s youth system. Currently with the U19 team, he went on the recent first team training camp to Marbella.
That would suggest he’s highly rated, but he hasn’t yet been offered an apprenticeship with the first team.
The youngster is represented by former player Ivan Klasnic. Speaking to Aftonbladet, he confirmed interest from England but made sure to say that’s not the only option. He also gave a hint of disappointment at no moves from Malmo yet.
“Amel thrives in Malmo and wants to fight for a place in the first team. But if he does not get a chance in Malmo, we have to find another solution, says his agent, Croatian old great player Ivan Klasnic.
“There is interest from England and from other countries too. I have tried to contact the sports manager, Mr Andersson, but he does not answer either on the phone or on my SMS. It is very frustrating. I don’t know how they think about Amel.”
Of course, Leeds United have in their ranks Pontus Jansson, a Malmo super-fan. It would be no surprise if he knows all about the young talent at his favoured club.
Whilst it’s unlikely the defender would do anything to upset his beloved club, if Malmo aren’t showing they’re so bothered about Mujanic, then Jansson is a good place for Leeds to get a recommendation on the player.
Leeds United have a recent history of business with Malmo, having signed Paweł Cibicki from the club in 2017.
