Hammarby sporting director Jasper Jansson has lifted the lid on what AC Milan can expect from reported new signing Emil Roback.
SportExpressen reporteer Daniel Kristoffersson reported earlier today that Milan are about to sign Roback from Hammarby – the club where Zlatan Ibrahimovic is part-owner.
Roback signed his first professional contract six months ago and made his debut for Hammarby in a cup game against IFK Göteborg earlier this year. Since then, he’s been playing for Hammarby’s affiliate club IK Frej.
“Emil is a striker with great physique, speed and is already an experienced scorer,” he said (via MilanNews).
“He has a gift: the X-Factor. Roback is fast, strong and a natural goalscorer. He has good physique and extreme speed.”
In 2019, Roback played 25 matches across youth level and scored 18 goals. For the Swedish under 17 national team, he has played 10 matches and scored five goals. He is believed to have attracted interest from both Arsenal and Bayern Munich, but in the end has chosen a move to Italy.
