ZIMBABWE international striker Nyasha Mushekwi scored his 11th goal, in less than two months in the Swedish top-flight league, and this is likely to boost interest in his services across Europe.

Reports have indicated that clubs in Germany, Holland and France are now interested in Mushekwi although his handlers favour a move to England where they feel his physical game will be better suited.

English clubs have always cast their eye on Swedish football and Mushekwi’s impressive goal-scoring feat is unlikely to have gone unnoticed in the Premiership and his agents, who have been patient all along, must now be certain that a big break is on the way.

The big Zimbabwean continued with his fine scoring form on Sunday night after slamming home the opener for his Swedish club Djurgardens IF in their 1-1 draw against Malmo FF.

Mushekwi struck on 39 minutes after some atrocious defending by Malmo defender Filip Helander who tried to clear a low cross from the left using his head only to mess up and present the Zimbabwean striker with one of the easiest chances of his career.

Malmo then found the equaliser through Magnus Eikrem after 53 minutes — a result that left both teams in the top five after 13 matches.

Mushekwi — who is on loan at Djurgardens from parent club Mamelodi Sundowns — remains the leading goal scorer in Sweden after stretching his total for the season to 11 goals.

The tall forward has scored his goals from 11 starts, really impressive for a striker who only joined the club at the beginning of the season after spending most of last year battling with a knee injury which forced him to cut short his loan spell at Belgian club KV Oostende.

The 27-year-old joined Djurgardens at the end of March and his goal scoring form has ignited interest from Allsvenskan leaders IFK Gotenborg.

Mushekwi has attracted interest from Swedish giants IFK Goteborg.

He has netted 11 times for the Swedish outfit since signing a contract in April.

“I have heard of Gothenburg interest. Right now I do not know what happens. It will be a summer break now and then we will see,” Mushekwi is quoted as telling Sportexpressen.

“But it’s about the club may agree with my club in South Africa. It is difficult for me to say anything else.”

The Zimbabwean’s loan deal expires in August.

Mushekwi last played for Sundowns in the 2012-13 season and spent the next campaign on loan at Belgian side KV Oostende.
