Since before the transfer window commenced, Sheffield United fringe midfielder Ismaila Coulibaly has been actively pursuing a move to AIK in Sweden. The midfielder has been reportedly determined to secure his transfer to the Allsvenskan, but as of now, no concrete developments have emerged.
Chris Wilder’s recent remarks suggesting the possibility of loaning Coulibaly away from Sheffield United this January have surely piqued the interest of AIK. Thomas Bernsten, the club’s director of football, spoke to Fotbollskanalen about it on Tuesday, indicating AIK’s keenness on the potential transfer.
He said: “Ismaila is a player I know well. If he ends up at AIK, it would be good, but I think that there are quite a few others clubs that are in the picture, and we have a challenge with our foreigner quota, so we’ll see.”
He later added, “There are probably many clubs involved”.
