In April of this year, we covered a report from Sweden’s FotbollDirekt which stated Leicester City were interested in Hammarby IF’s Akinkunmi Amoo.

At the time, Hammarby chief scout Mikael Hjelmberg said some clubs had already made contact.

“Clubs have been in touch and asked if we would be interested in discussing the conditions for a transfer. And we’re not. We still have nothing concrete to relate to, but we have no interest at this time in selling him. It’s up to clubs to get in touch with us.”

Leicester City were put alongside Valencia, Atlético Madrid, Borussia Dortmund and Ajax as clubs who were keen on the winger, and it was stated they had been since before Amoo moved to Hammarby IF in 2020.

At the time a possible transfer fee was put at around €4m.

Nigeria’s Complete Sports now bring the situation to the present day, and report Leicester, Dortmund, Ajax and Valencia are still keen.

There’s nothing more added to the claims, just that those sides remain interested and are presumably still keeping an eye on the 19-year-old’s progress with his Swedish club.

So far this season, Amoo has made 35 appearances in various attacking roles, and has scored 13 goals, whilst adding four assists.
