The Norwegian teenager is also in Bayern Munich’s sights, according to Eurosport.

Premier League sides Everton and Sunderland are tracking Norwegian teenager Henrik Asali Hanssen, according to Eurosport, but have stiff competition for his signature in the form of Bayern Munich.

The Scandinavian country has produced a number of enterprising young players in recent times, with the pursuit of Martin Odegaard by a wealth of European clubs much-publicised before the teenage star opted to move to Real Madrid.

The latest sensation reportedly is Hanssen, who has been making waves in the Norway under-15 side and is a member of Tromso’s youth set-up.

The starlet has admitted that he is aware of interest from overseas and although he has lofty ambitions for his time in the sport is trying to put it to the back of his mind.

"I was aware of this,” Eurosport quote him as saying.

“It means that you want to go to the maximum, but I've tried not often think about it. One can not otherwise concentrate so well.

“My big dream is to become a professional football player and to be playing in one of the five major European leagues and join the ranks of the national team."

The report instigates that Bayern are motivated to land Hanssen and feel he would be an excellent addition to their renowned youth academy, especially after they missed out on Odegaard.

Everton and Sunderland clearly offer the youngster a chance of development and potentially a quicker route to first-team football, but the allure of the Allianz Arena giants would surely be a real draw card and hard to refuse.

The Premier League duo reportedly sent scouts to watch the youngster at the recent under-15 international clash between Norway and Sweden.
