Leeds United and West Ham in transfer battle for Swedish teenager Amel Mujanic


Leeds United and West Ham are interested in signing teenage midfielder Amel Mujanic, according to reports.

Mujanic, the 17-year-old midfielder, has caught the eye playing in Malmo’s youth system, and he’s even been promoted to train with the club’s first-team on occasion.

Mujanic represented Sweden at last summer’s European Under-17 Championship, held in England

However, he remains without a professional appearance to his name, having instead played at Under-19 level for Malmo.

Despite not playing senior football as of yet, Mujanic has caught the attention of clubs from across Europe – including English pair Leeds United and West Ham.


Aftonbladet report the interest from the duo, with Mujanic’s future in doubt as he has still not been offered an apprenticeship by Malmo.

Mujanic’s agent, Ivan Klasnic, also confirmed clubs are looking at the Swedish youngster.

“Amel thrives in Malmo and wants to fight for a place in the first team,” Klasnic said. “But if he does not get a chance in Malmo, we have to find another solution.”

“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.”

Mujanic has been capped at youth level by his country, appearing 12 times for Sweden’s Under-17s and also going on to be capped at Under-18 level.
