The agent of Anel Ahmedhodzic has claimed that Malmo will listen to offers for the former Nottingham Forest man in January, amid links to Chelsea.

The 21-year-old left the City Ground in 2019 after rising through the youth ranks and making his first-team debut.

Ahmedhodzic didn’t find the pathway to first-team football overly clear and managed just six minutes during a 3-1 defeat to Newcastle United.

He has gone from strength to strength at Malmo though playing 37 games for the club and quickly proving his worth.


It is thought that the former Reds youngster is wanted by Frank Lampard at Chelsea, with AC Milan, PSV and Ajax also keen.

Now, his agent has seemingly confirmed that his current club will listen to offers during the January window.

He told Supersport: “The interest is enormous. Almost daily it is written about Anel and it’s no secret that there are always new clubs calling him.

“Anel has it all. Of course, he can still learn a lot, but if you look at the important qualities – he is young, tall, built, has technique and a good overview. He’s got it all.

“He has to go to a club where he can flourish completely, somewhere where he won’t end up on the bench. During the winter break, we will listen to the various offers we get.”

Did Forest miss a trick with Ahmedhodzic?

The 21-year-old was unleashed into the action by boss Philippe Montanier although he never earned a regular place in the team.

He emerged at a similar time to Joe Worrall but clearly wasn’t fancied quite as much to earn a starting eleven berth on a consistent basis.

It was thought at the time that Ahmedhodzic held a desire to return to his native roots and perhaps Forest were powerless to let him leave.

Now he’s matured, however, and who knows what might have happened had he been handed a regular run of games in the Forest side.

Malmo value the player at £6.9 million and who knows what he might have been worth had he become a first-team regular on Trentside.
