Wolverhampton Wanderers have signed a number of hot prospects from Europe in the last two seasons, some to develop in the youth sides and some to make an instant impact in the first-team. And if latest reports are to be believed, Wolves have their eye on a ‘coveted young player’ from Sweden.
According to Fotboll Direkt (h/t Tribal Football), Wolverhampton Wanderers are ‘tracking’ Armin Gigovic. The 17-year-old joined Helsingborgs IF from BoIS in 2017 and rose through the youth ranks to the first-team in 2019. He’s been a regular at Olympia this season and could have a bright future under the right guidance.
Gigovic has made 14 appearances in the Allsvenskan, making one assist in 963 minutes. He’s started in Helsingborgs’ last 10 league games alongside the experienced Alexander Farnerud & Mohammed Abubakari, and is clearly rated highly by his club.
Wolves may have competition to procure his signature with CSKA Moscow sniffing around the teenager, but it remains to be seen which side is leading the race. Gigovic still has two years remaining on his deal at Helsingborgs and seems content to stay in Sweden despite all the interest elsewhere.
He was recently quoted as saying: “It feels fun to hear. But I haven’t really thought much about it. It’s not something I focus on, but I have a good dialogue with HIF.” The midfielder might change his mind if an official bid comes his way, however.
