Both Dutch clubs have a good record of developing young players and that could sway the player’s decision in their favour. Zlatan himself honed his skills at the Amsterdam Arena before moving on to Serie A with Juventus.

The Frisians will also be helped by the fact that they have a couple of young Swedish players in their ranks who could influence Isak’s decision.

The Swedish youth international has scored nine league goals for his team in 20 league games.
