According to Swedish newspaper Kvallposten, Chelsea are one of several European teams interested in Ahmedhodzic.

The Blues are said to be preparing a £6.9million bid for the youngster, who would be offered a five-year deal.

Ahmedhodzic is under contract in Malmo until 2023.

Last season saw the player split his campaign split between Malmo and a loan spell at Danish side Hobro.

Upon his return, he was awarded with starts in February's Europa League defeats to Wolfsburg.

And Ahmedhodzic is now a regular in Malmo's pursuit of the Allsvenskan title, starting 24 times and scoring twice.

His form earned a call-up to the Swedish national team in January but, despite appearing in a friendly against Moldova, he switched allegiance to Bosnia for last month's Euro 2020 play-off.

Ahmedhodzic is in his second stint with Malmo having left for a spell with Nottingham Forest in 2016.

The majority of his time at the City Ground was spent with the reserves, making just a single appearance off the bench against Newcastle shortly after joining.

Chelsea have a plethora of defenders already at Frank Lampard's disposal, with Ahmedhodzic likely to join the club's loan army if he signs.

Centre-backs Ethan Ampadu, Jake Clarke-Salter, Marc Guehi, Matt Miazga and Malang Sarr are all currently out on loan from the Premier League club.
