17-year old Jack Lahne has been attracting a lot of attention from overseas after his stellar performances for IF Brommapojkarna in the Swedish Allsvenskan.

According to Swedish publication Expressen, both Middlesbrough and Wolves are scouting the teenager and are interested in bringing the young Swede to England.

Lahne has played 17 times this season so far, scoring four goals in the process. He is a winger, usually found on the left of midfield, but he can also play as a striker. Given his pace and trickery he is able to beat a man with ease, and it is obvious he has an eye for goal too.

The youngster is a Sweden under-17 international, and a move to England would certainly help him in his development going up the age brackets at international level.

Middlesbrough are certainly in need for a winger, given the departure of star man Adama Traore in the summer, who ironically moved to Wolves. Not that Lahne would be a direct replacement for the Spaniard, however, Tony Pulis may have identified the Swede as a long term solution to their problems in wide areas.

As well as both Boro and Wolves, it is reported that scouts from France, Germany and Turkey are also monitoring the wingers’ progress at IF Brommapojkarna, and there is no front runner in the pursuit of Lahne as yet.

The 17-year old is reportedly valued at 1.2 million, and could be a good investment for the likes of Middlesbrough or Wolves – if he can fulfil his potential.
