As per a report from the Daily Star, Premier League outfit Everton are the latest club to express an interest in RB Leipzig star Emil Forsberg.

Gifted creator

Forsberg made the move to the Red Bull Arena in 2015, having been named Sweden’s midfielder of the year in 2014 for his exploits with Malmo.

Though his abilities have been common knowledge for some time, the 26-year-old moved to a level that few thought him capable of over the course of the 2016/17 campaign, racking up 8 goals and a league-high 19 assists as RB Leipzig clinched second place in the Bundesliga in their debut campaign in the German top flight.

In-demand

Unsurprisingly, Forsberg’s stellar showings quickly alerted a number of Europe’s top clubs to his talents, with all of Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Arsenal and Manchester United having been linked with moves for the Swede last summer.

In the end, the 41-time capped international stayed put, but majorly struggled to replicate his sensational form from Leipzig’s debut Bundesliga campaign, with a number of injury problems having restricted Forsberg to just 15 league starts this past season.
