Sheffield United have expressed interest in BK Häcken youngster Ali Youssef, after the Swedish forward was promoted to their first team in July 2019.
Although Youssef has only made ten senior appearances in all competitions for Häcken, it proved sufficient enough for him to draw attentions from European clubs.
Sheffield United are one of the sides who have expressed interest in the nineteen year old Swedish prodigy can operate on both the left and right wing.
Ali Youssef has contract with the Swedish club until 2023 and the teenager also hinted at a possible move away from Häcken in the future.
“I hope I get to play as much as possible, do well, score goals and then be able to take the next step. My dream is the Premier League. It’s a big league with a lot of good clubs. Otherwise, I like the French league too,” Ali said speaking to Fotboltransfers.
When further quizzed about preference for the French league, the nineteen-year-old explained: “I have no direct favourite team, but I like Marseille. My favourite player has always been Eden Hazard. There is a lot of talk about football overall with the guys, especially these days when we don’t have competition games, which is boring.”
Youssef also confirmed interests from the Premier League, specifically naming Sheffield United.
“I don’t focus so much on it, but let my agent handle that part. But there are some clubs that are interested. There are teams from Holland and England, including Sheffield United,” Youssef added.
“I take everything as it comes, day by day. You get used to being able to talk a little more, and then you try to be professional and sacrifice a little. You can’t be out with friends as late as before.”
And should he make a move to Sheffield United, he is unlikely to walk in at Bramall Lane’s first team straightaway.
