But who is Yagan Sasman and what makes him so special that a team in Sweden came searching for his signature?
Here’s what you should know about Yagan Sasman and some highlights from his South African playing career.
BORN IN CAPE TOWN
Yagan Sasman was born in Cape Town in 1996.
He played his first “big game” in 2017, debuting his skills while playing for the Ajax Cape Town Youth Academy against SuperSport United.
The game might have ended in a 0-0 draw, but it helped kick-start the young soccer star’s career almost instantly.
