Robins boss set to assess Swedish forward’s quality
Bristol City manager Lee Johnson will assess the quality of forgotten striker Gustav Engvall during a pre-season training camp in Tenerife according to the Bristol Post.
The 21-year-old Kalmar born hitman has enjoyed loan spell with Swedish club Djurgardens IF after failing to impress at Ashton Gate with a catalogue of injury problems having not helped his cause.
The Allsvenskan league club are thought to want to keep the player at the Tele2 Arena until the end of the Swedish season in November however it is understood that Bristol City boss Johnson has invited the player to join his parent club as they participate in a pre-season training camp in Tenerife. It is thought that Johnson will assess Engvall’s quality before making a decision on his immediate future.
After struggling since joining Bristol City from IFK Goteborg last summer, Engvall has rediscovered his goalscoring form with the player currently topping the goalscoring charts in the Allsvenskan league. The Swedish international has two years remaining on his current deal at Ashton Gate and the forward’s recent good showings have indicated that Engvall may yet have a future in the English game.
Bristol City are expected to make a final decision on whether the player’s loan spell at Djurgardens IF will be extended after their pre-season training camp.
