They might have found the man to do just that though, in AIK’s Alexander Isak.

Isak became AIK’s youngest goalscorer when he netted against Ostersunds in April aged just 16 years and 199 days.

He followed that up by scoring twice against Dif in the Stockholm derby on his 17th birthday, leading Chinedu Obasi to dub him the ‘new Ibra’.

But what does Ibra think of his heir?

According to Tuttosport Ibrahimovic has told his agent, Mino Raiola, to recommend Isak to former clubs Juventus and PSG.

Liverpool and Leicester have also both been linked with a move for the 6ft 3in striker, along with many of Europe’s elite clubs.

Hopefully Isak doesn’t have the same hatred for trials as Zlatan did.
