Signings like this just make me happy we're playing the way we are now because you know they will come in and be given the freedom to express themselves

Do we think he will come in and be in and around the squad next season? With Hojbjerg likely to be going, could it be him coming in to the squad as replacement?

He's going to have a lot of opportunities to impress during pre-season, if he stays healthy. With GLC, Bentancur, PEH and Maddison all likely to be involved in international tournaments in the summer, good chance for him to come into pre-season camp already in great shape and in-form.

He is human after all- sometimes gives it simple but always looking to create and get forward. See the locals have resorted to kicking him up in the air most of the time

This is the best video of the guy, at 18 playing against quality opposition.

The first video where it seems like he's not a man against boys. (and I mean that as a complement).

He could be ready sooner than we think, for me it's the Sarr role he'll be looking at. Very rarely do I see a player that I think has everything to be world class, Kvartsheila had it, but this guy has everything.

For me one year of bedding in and sub appearances and then the following season he'll be class. It's almost ridiculous how good he is at his age.

Absoloute star in the making.

He is very talented.

But I would argue against this edition of IFK Göteborg being described as quality opposition. It’s a poor team in a poor (albeit entertaining) league.

His next step is huge. He is yet to find a level that is beyond him. But I expect he’ll need time before bossing midfields in England.

The Swedish league is poor and the footballing education our players receive is notoriously behind what we should expect, but that's also one of the exciting things about Bergvall for me as he's progressing at an explosive pace despite that.
I expect he'll be a few steps away from pushing himself into the team when he joins, but I also expect that he could progress even faster in a better environment under Ange.

A very exciting player, but I truly hope our fans don't expect too much, too soon just because he was linked to Barca.

If we were to continue in a 433 system, both he and Sarr as a pair of #8's ahead of a DM would make for a very strong midfield.

What are we talking here, a Modric like or more of a Maddison?
Because of his gait and size plus his recent improvement in goal scoring, he’s starting to draw comparisons to Bellingham.

Not sure on that myself but I can see the reasoning.
Sticking to your comparison though he’s definitely more Maddison than Modric.

Could be multiple reasons, perhaps our national team coach doesn't think he's quite ready yet. As talented as he is, he has only played one season of top flight football and the quality of the Swedish league is poor.

Another reason could be that our U21 team played important qualifiers. Maybe we thought it would be better that he (and other young players a lot of people wanted to see in the first team) played in those games rather than in some meaningless friendlies.
Competitive games > meaningless friendlies all the way. A good decision IMO.

Oozes class this boy.

Quite how we will deploy him next season - be it, featured in the first team squad or perhaps loaned out for the first season but he clearly has the prerequisite talent and physical ability to make an impact in the Premier League.

Everything points to him turning into a very complete player. Skill and intelligence is obvious, but he's also tall and will grow stronger, and his distance covered is impressive - like Eriksen he runs continuously.

He looks incredible for his age. Id expect him to be right in the squad next season and hopefully getting plenty of minutes.
