Alexander Isak, 17, is reportedly being recommended to both Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain by Ibrahimovic as the young attacker continues to impress in Sweden’s top flight.

Isak currently plays for Swedish side AIK and has notched eight goals in 19 appearances this season. During the past year, Isak has appeared for the Under-17, U19 and U21 Swedish national teams.

Similar to Ibrahimovic, Isak is looking to make the leap to top level European football at a young age. Ibra spent his youth and early professional days with Swedish side Malmo before moving on to Ajax and several other major clubs throughout Europe.
