LANDSKRONA chairman Kenneth Hakansson has admitted that two of their brightest talents could join Ajax if they impress during a week-long trial.
Swedish youngsters Mans Sorensson and Ajsel Kujovic will travel over to Holland on Friday and will train with the ArenA juniors for a week before playing in a friendly.
The duo are Sweden Under-17 internationals and are contracted to Landskrona, who have told planetfootball that a deal could be on the cards should they impress.
Ajax coach Ronald Koeman (pictured) is following up initial interest from his predecessor Co Adriaanse, who tried to asses Sorensson last year but he was unable to travel to Holland for a trial.
Landskrona supremo Hakansson told planetfootball that the duo will travel over on Friday in a bid to impress.
"They are leaving Sweden today and will stay in Holland for one week," confirmed Hakansson.
"There is a likelihood of a deal but we have not discussed that yet and talks will come at a later date."
When asked about the duo, Hakansson added: "They are both attack minded players who are in the Sweden Under-17 team and are very good players."
The pair are likely to receive a warm welcome in Amsterdam, as the golden boy of Swedish football, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is already on Ajax`s books.
In other news, Ajax will be without promising young defender Johnny Heitinga for a minimum of six weeks after he had surgery on his troublesome right knee on Friday.
