IFK Norrkoping admit they're having to turn away scouts as the frenzy around Isak Bergmann Johannesson intensifies.

The 17 year-old Icelander has been watched by Manchester United, Juventus and Liverpool in consecutive weeks.

IFK director Jens Magnusson revealed: "I think there are six scouts who can be admitted per match. But we had an incredible number of more requests for this match (against AIK).

"So there is a limitation. We've had to pull the handbrake a bit now. Then you never know exactly which players they are there to watch, of course. But here at the end, it is no secret that many are there to see Isak."

IFK chief scout Stig Torbjörnsen also stated to Fotbolldirekt.se: "That is completely correct, there were many who were not admitted. Glad that so many who want to come in and watch IFK Norrköping. It's been many times this season actually. It's not unique to yesterday's match. But I see nothing strange about it.

"Even in a normal season, there are many scouts watching our players."
