Leicester, Valencia watching Hammarby attacker Akinkunmi Amoo

Leicester City are among clubs watching Hammarby attacker Akinkunmi Amoo.

The young Nigerian is being scouted this season by the Foxes, Ajax, Borussia Dortmund and Valencia.

“I often hear that I have the same playing style as Messi, so I am sometimes called the little Messi," said Amoo.

“He is my role model."

Amoo has also spoken with AC Milan striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is a co-owner in Hammarby.

“It was unbelievable. I was very impressed and happy. Ibrahimovic is an incredibly good footballer that I look up to, but above all a very nice person.

“Zlatan said I have to dare to play my game, stay focused all the time and not be afraid of anyone, because then I will develop."
