Highly-rated Swedish U21 star Alexander Milosevic boosted his chances of a potential Premier League transfer to suitors Liverpool and Arsenal after firing in an unstoppable 45-yard goal of the season contender.
The 20-year-old was playing in a Swedish domestic league game for last year’s runner-ups AIK against GIF Sundsvall on Sunday when he smashed in the thumping strike from just outside the centre circle.
Instead of knocking the ball around the back-line, the former Vasalunds man seized a moment of opportunity 15 minutes into the game to break the deadlock with a ‘Pick That Out’ wonder-strike.
Receiving a pass in his stride, Milosevic teed himself up before firing a precision-perfect rocket into the top-left corner past a shocked goalkeeper.
It was a sensational way to grab his first goal for the club and not a bad effort considering he is a 6ft 3in centre back…
The talented youngster is a reported transfer target for Liverpool chief Kenny Dalglish, while Arsenal are also thought to be monitoring the shaven-headed No.6.
Milosevic began his career as a striker before converting to stopping goals as he approached his 18th birthday.
AIK chief Jens Anderson admitted last week: ‘Several clubs from England are following him.’
Not a bad way to get Europe’s top scouts to sit up and take notice.
