The Leeds United loanee is close to a return for his loan club, but only a brilliant last few months will save him.
Leeds United fans could be forgiven for forgetting about Marcus Antonsson. Not only is the Swedish striker on loan at Blackburn Rovers in League One, but he hasn't kicked a ball since December due to injury.
Rovers boss Tony Mowbray confirmed to The Lancashire Telegraph last week that the 27-year-old is back in training following an ankle problem, but you get the feeling that only a goal-laden end to the 2017-18 campaign will save his Leeds career at this point.
Prior to his injury, Antonsson, a £2 million signing (Yorkshire Evening Post) from Kalmar in 2016, was doing the business in League One, netting seven goals in 19 starts - even though he has played on the left wing at times under Mowbray.
Some Leeds fans say he found his level, while others claim that he is simply benefiting from a consistent run of games after playing second fiddle to Chris Wood last term, before being effectively exiled completely by Garry Monk in the second half of the campaign.
Nevertheless, his parent club aren't exactly flush with brilliant goalscorers, because their best striker is a Hamburg loanee whose wages might make it difficult to do a permanent deal this summer.
And maybe, just maybe, there is a route back to West Yorkshire for Antonsson, especially given that Thomas Christiansen - who loaned him to Blackburn - has since been replaced by Paul Heckingbottom at Elland Road.
But without a very prolific last few months, his career with the Whites is probably over.
