Mohamed Bangura's agent has revealed that clubs from across Europe are keeping tabs on the Sierra Leone international.
Bangura has been making a name for himself in Swedish football with AIK Solna, where he is under contract until 2013.
Chelsea and Tottenham have previously been linked with the 21-year-old striker but agent Patrick Mork does not want to confirm the identities of potential suitors.
Mork is adamant that there is plenty of interest, however, and says his client must now consider his options.
"It is pretty obvious that clubs are looking at him," the agent told Fotbollskanalen.se.
"That's what they do now, the clubs. They go around and look at players. But it's far from a deal.
"There are clubs from all the major leagues in Europe."
"He is absolutely ready. The next question is of course what step to take. It is really uncommon to go directly from Allsvenskan to one of the biggest leagues. Even Zlatan (Ibrahimovic) went via Holland."
Mork also indicated that a permanent switch would be preferable for Bangura at this stage of his career.
He explained: "If a club doesn't have enough space and wants to loan, then the question is how big the interest really is.
"It is hard to say but that doesn't really sound like an ideal solution."
