“We are very proud to have such a big transition for a player from our academy operations. Several big clubs in Europe have wanted to get over Emil, and now at the end Hammarby has agreed with two clubs, so it is Emil who made the final choice ", says sports director Jesper Jansson in a press release.

During the summer, he has been matched in the division 1 team IK Frej.

Expressen revealed the transfer earlier this week and the newspaper reports that the deal gives Hammarby more than SEK 15 million, which could be well over SEK 20 million if performance-based clauses and bonuses fall out.
