Young Swedish starlet is being tracked by some of Europe’s elite clubs.
Liverpool are set to go head to head with a whole host of other big-name clubs from across the Continent in the race to sign Halmstads’ attacking starlet Valmir Berisha, a player who has been dubbed the “new Zlatan Ibrahimovic” back in his homeland on the back of the youngster’s recent eye-catching displays, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The Sweden Under-17 international has been making a lot of headlines of late after starring for his country in the recent Fifa U17 World Cup, in particular following an outrageous back-heeled goal against Honduras that was reminiscent of his more famous compatriot at his very best.
And now Berisha has revealed that some of Europe’s most recognisable clubs are interested in signing him when the winter transfer window opens again for business in the new year, one of which is the Mereyside giants, as well as the likes of fellow Premier League outfits Tottenham Hotspur and Sunderland, and Scottish Premier League champions Glasgow Celtic, AC Milan and Ajax.
“The clubs that have shown the biggest interest are Ajax, Milan, Liverpool, Sunderland, Tottenham and Celtic,” confirmed Berisha to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.
“I have got offers from everywhere, from England, Italy, Spain, Germany, Holland and Russia. There are some options.
“They have all offered me contracts. But it is a matter of choosing the right one, that is the most important.”
Berisha has so far managed to hit the back of the net on 15 occasions, as well as contributing two assists along the way, in total in his 25 matches for club and country in this campaign.
