Agent confirms Barcelona invite for Brommapojkarna superkid Jardell Kanga

The agent of IF Brommapojkarna superkid Jardell Kanga admits Europe's biggest clubs are following the youngster.

Kanga has had past trials with Brighton and Feyenoord, while BP have confirmed Barcelona wish to take him for tests with their academy.

Agent Hasan Cetinkaya told Sportbladet via Fotboll Transfers: "Barcelona has control of the best 15-year-olds and they count Jardell among them and therefore they want him to come down to La Masia for a week in early February.

"There are several different alternatives and possibilities, but we'll let everything happen in peace and quiet."

Kanga, at 15, became the youngest ever player to sign pro terms with BP. The youngster has already trialled with Brighton, which enjoy strong roots with Sweden, along with Holland's Feyenoord.

Significantly, a member of Barca coach Ronald Koeman's staff is Swedish great and former Blaugrana striker Henrik Larsson.

Cetinkaya, meanwhile, counts Barca players Frenkie de Jong and Martin Braithwaite as among his management company's clients.

While he is now a senior pro, there's an understanding at IF Brommapojkarna that Kanga will need time and patience to make it to the first team. However, IF Brommapojkarna sports chief Peter Kisfaludy says they won't block the youngster from trialling with Barcelona next month.
