Ghana forward Nasiru Mohammed continued his fine start to life in Europe on Monday with another goal as BK Hacken beat Gefle IF 2-0 in Gavle, his fourth goal in three games.
Mohammed, 18, who spent the early summer on trial with Manchester City, joined Hacken on a three-month loan deal in August and has gone on to make a considerable impact in the Swedish Allsvenskan.
Partnered up-front by fellow Ghanaian Abdul Waris, Mohammed has quickly settled into life in Scandinavia and there was already talk of a four-year contract off the basis of his first two games for the club – during which he played just 60 minutes, scoring on three occasions.
The young striker, on-loan from Rainbow FC in the Ghanaian Second Division, could do worse than to follow the example of Waris, who was linked with a move to both Holland and Germany this summer, and earned a Black Stars call off the back of his performances in a Hacken shirt – having scored 17 times in 20 games this campaign.
Short and pacy, Mohammed has the ability to play either as a either a main centre-forward, or drop deeper and play a more creative role as a second-striker for his side. A former Ghana Under-17 captain, he recently graduated to the national Under-20 squad before his move to Northern Europe.
