Pontus Dahlberg is a player that not many people know but they will soon. The Swedish Goalkeeper joined Watford during the January transfer window but returned to his club, two time UEFA Cup winners IFK Gothenburg, until the summer so he can continue to get the amazing amount of game time he has already racked up despite his tender age of 19.
He is already the starting Goalkeeper for the Swedish U21’s and has been included in senior squads and looks like the real heir to Andreas Isaksson, who played over 100 games for Sweden alongside a stint at Southampton. Dahlberg was even awarded as the best newcomer in Sveksna last season and looks like a steal for Watford.
Swedes and the Premier League go far a long way with Freddie Ljungberg, Henrik Larsson and Anders Limpar in the past with Zlatan and Victor Nilsson Lindelof currently plying their trade in the top division, at Manchester United no less, alongside other less high profile players, like Martin Olsson at Swansea.
There are lots of gems like Dahlberg that other Premier clubs should consider before they need to be bought for fees like Lindelof’s which was north of thirty million pounds. With the summer transfer window approaching and the World Cup, which always leads to transfers, on the horizon, many punters are taking up one of the great free bet offers on UK betting sites to have a flutter on the next destinations of top players. You can get up to £100 in bet credits, from some betting sites, meaning you can bet large sums of money without risking any of your own.
There are some clear transfer candidates for Premier League Clubs, these are three of the most obvious Swedish players playing across the globe who could fit in at a Premier League club.
Emil Forsberg (RB Leipzig)
Forsberg is an absolute superstar at RB Leipzig, having broken the Bundesliga assist record and been an all-round amazing chance creator last season. He was also key in getting Sweden past Italy and into the World Cup. With reports that he has fallen out with his manager in Germany, he looks set to leave and would be great for a top team.
Ludwig Augustinsson (Werder Bremen)
A stylish and calm left back with great corner delivery, Augustinsson has been one of the few good performances for a poor Werder Bremen side. Fullbacks are hard to come by, especially ones who can defend as well as attack and Augustinsson is the master of both. Would be brilliant for a mid-table side.
Joel Asoro (Sunderland)
Sunderland are having an utter nightmare of a season down in the Championship with back to back relegations looking almost certain. Asoro has been one of the few bright spots with some great performances from the youngster suggesting that he could well play at higher level. He is pacey, great with his feet and confident for a player of only 18. For anyone looking for an impact sub or for youth to spruce up their attack, then he is a great option.
