Hosam Aiesh is a player in demand, with Leeds United, Nottingham Forest and Reading reported to be interested in the Ostersunds FK star.

According to Fotboll Direkt, Championship trio Leeds, Forest and Reading all are tracking the 24-year-old, who can operate as a winger or as a centre-forward.

The Sweden international has been on the books of Ostersunds since 2015, and he has progressed well over the past few years.

Leeds, Forest and Reading all could do with an attacking player in their respective squads for next season, and Aiesh will be a good signing for the Whites, the Reds or the Royals.


Ostersund manager Ian Burchnall, though, has said that there have been no concrete offers for the attacker yet, but he is aware that clubs are keeping tabs on the Sweden international.

Fotboll Transfers quotes Burchnall as saying about Aiesh: "I know there were people who checked the match against Djurgarden as well. I do not know which clubs, but they checked on our players.”

Burchnall added when asked about offers for Aiesh: “There is nothing concrete.”
