Goodison Park: Johan Hammar has been unable to force his way into the first team

The 19-year-old defender is out of contract after failing to force his way into the senior fold at Goodison Park.

His only experience to date has come during a loan spell at Stockport County.

The Sweden U19 international is, however, considered to be a decent prospect after spending three years on the Toffees' books.

Sides from across Europe are said to be keen to put terms to him, with Hammar's agent revealing that an extended stay in England is possible.

Martin Klette told Fotbolldirekt.se: "In England, there is interest from clubs in the Championship.

"In other countries, the interest is from clubs in the top flight.

"We are negotiating with some clubs and some of them want Johan to come for a trial."

S I've always envisioned him as a Pirlo or a Scholes, though he needs some of Andy Murray's conditioning and shiny, ankle supports to keep his own from buckling under the tackles that will (inevitably) come his way. He's got the physique and low centre of gravity to flourish, but needs to make himself more resilient.

Time For Another Wenger U-Turn On Wilshere?

s a United fan I fell I can say this without accusation of bias, Sergio Aguero is for me the only player close to Ronaldo or Messi, what goes against him is his injury record, Hazard is good in fits but doesn't give enough end product in my eyes, Tevez would be 4th for me
