'I do not know': Arsenal and Liverpool target admits he's unsure on his future after January now

Arsenal and Liverpool target Andreas Schjelderup has admitted he’s unsure on his immediate future.

The 18-year-old centre-forward spoke to Danish publication Ekstra Bladet after FC Nordsjaelland’s most recent match.

The Danish side ran out 3-1 winners against Randers to go top of the Danish Superliga.

Schjelderup was in fine form, scoring a brace to take his tally to seven league goals in 11 appearances.

The teenager is currently top scorer in the league, an impressive feat for a player who only made his senior debut in February last year.

A report from Calciomercato suggests Arsenal and Liverpool are already interested in Schelderup.

Given his nationality, he’s already been dubbed ‘the next Erling Haaland’.

However, he’s not a physical powerhouse like Manchester City’s new hero, and is an accomplished dribbler as well as finisher.

Schjelderup unsure on his future

In his interview with Ekstra Bladet, Schjelderup said when asked about his future: “I do not know. It depends on what happens.

“Right now, I’m doing really well in North Zealand, and that’s where my focus is right now.”

It’s not easy for a player of his age to remain focused when two of the biggest clubs in world football come calling.

Scandinavia is a hotbed of young footballing talent.

Schjelderup can look at the likes of Haaland, Martin Odegaard and Dejan Kulusevski to see how his career could progress.

Schjelderup has previously said that he looks up to Haaland and Odegaard.

However, it’s Spanish legend Andres Iniesta that stands out to him due to his ‘fantastic close-range technique’.

If Schjelderup is to arrive in the Premier League, his ability to cope under pressure in tight spaces will be examined very closely.

He’s chosen some very sensible role models, and if a move to the Emirates ever happened, he’d get the chance to play with one of them.

With Schjelderup still unsure about his future, the best thing he can do is continue to score goals in Denmark.
