Anel Ahmedhodzic is a target for Chelsea and is currently playing for Swedish side Malmo, according to Expressen (h/t Football.London).
The 21-year-old has played for the Bosnian national team this season too and has 34 appearances for Malmo.
Chelsea were to offer £7.2million for the center-back, however, there seems to be a twist in the tale. So if you are one of those tipsters get on Olybet
and place a bid for Lampard to successfully sign the player and bring on board to the success story at Stamford bridge.
Ahmedhodzic’s father, Mirsad, told SportBladet via Teamtalk that his son’s agent wasn’t letting the deal go through:
“He’s [Rosenberg] not doing his job. He has told Marina [Granovskaia] at Chelsea that Anel is not going there.
“He [Anel] wants to go abroad after the season finishes.”
Markus Rosenborg, the player’s agent, has also been told by Mirsad to work with an Italian and get a deal done:
“Markus hasn’t arranged this, he doesn’t have the contacts,” he added. “I have tried to inform Markus that Pastorello wants to cooperate with him.”
Crazy circumstances for the youngster
While Chelsea could do with more young players joining Frank Lampard’s interesting project, this story is certainly a wild one.
An agent blocking the move of a player despite interest from a big club is something that isn’t heard often.
It will be interesting to see what is next for Ahmedhodzic and if we can land him later on. Chelsea had a busy summer, signing several youngsters and it seems like the team is finally clicking.
