Isak Bergmann Johannesson transfer chase heats up as Liverpool and Manchester United send scouts


Liverpool have become the latest team to send scouts to watch highly-rated Icelandic teenager Ísak Bergmann Jóhannesson as the chase for the 17-year-old’s signature heats up.

It has been confirmed that Liverpool sent their Scandinavian scout Mads Jörgensen to watch Bergmann Jóhannesson in the Swedish Allsvenskan game between IFK Norrköping and AIK, making the Reds the latest top European club to monitor the Icelandic starlet.

Manchester United sent scouts to watch the youngster a week earlier, in their game against Varberg BOIS, while Juventus are long-term admirers.

The youngster is a talented attacking midfielder who can also operate as a wide midfielder cutting inside or as a number 10. He has three goals and eight assists in his breakout season in Allsvenskan, making him one of the top creators in the league at just 17 years of age.

IFK Norrköping’s chief scout Stig Torbjörnsen has all but confirmed the rumors in a conversation with SportExpressenadmitting that several top clubs around Europe are circling around Bergmann Jóhannsesson:

“There has been great interest. It’s fun that we have many interesting players but it’s no secret that clubs are chasing Bergmann Johannesson.

“We have quite a lot of money and no need to sell, and Isak has a sensible agent and family who know what they want and when he should go so it’s no stress for us, it’s rolling on. When something comes up that is good for all parties, something may happen. ”

Torbjörnsen admitted that Liverpool are one of the teams watching Bergmann Jóhannsesson, who was born in Sutton Coldfield and is eligible for England.

“Yes, you can name all ten best clubs in Europe. Everyone has been here for him, they are all curious. This is how the scouting world works that there is interest when such a young guy plays so well for such a long time. He has performed in the U21 national team and Norrköping has a history with young players. The situation is damn good.

Liverpool is one club, there are ten others as well. It is normal and fun for the association and Isak himself. A club with a lot of money may appear tomorrow or in six months. It is good that Isak is calm and has a good advisor and family. Norrköping has no stress, the important thing is that the decision is not hasty but right. ”

Bergmann Jóhannsesson was named in June as one of the top 10 players to watch in Allsvenskan 2020 on the Nordic Football Podcast and has regularly been discussed on the show for his exploits during this breakthrough campaign.
