Tunisia Persuading Swedish-born Playmaker for World Cup

North African giants Tunisia are out to get Kerim Mrabti switch his allegiance to the Carthage Eagles.

The French-speaking African nation is looking to beef up its roster for the June’s Russia event having had few key players on the treatment table.

Gaffer Nabil Maaloul and Tunisian football boss Waii Jarii are set to jet to Stockholm to watch the 23-year-old who will be in action for Djurgarden IF in a Cup competition game where they hope to speak to the player.

Kerim is a box of tricks and does not blink in the face of opposition defenders, drawing comparisons with Chelsea’s Eden Hazard.

His ability to unlock defences makes him an ideal candidate to replace Mskani whose World Cup hopes were dented by an injury leaving Tunisia bit handicapped.

With this, Maaloul and Jarii are keen to move heaven and earth to have the star switch his allegiance in a bid to fill the midfield-attacking void.

Mrabti was born in the Scandinavian country and has represented Sweden at all youth levels. However, he qualifies to star for the Carthage Eagles through his mother who is Tunisian.

His deal with Djurgarden ends November this year.

Playing time is expected to influence the former Sirius playmaker’s decision and he looks more guaranteed of it with Tunisia.
