Nyasha Mushekwi’s 10 goals in the Swedish Allsvenskan has staked the Zimbabwean international forward so high that his on-loan club Djurgardens are now desperately negotiating to permanently secure the former CAPS United man.

Mushekwi’s loan spell at Djurgardens end in October and his parent South African club Mamelodi Sundowns are likely to cash in a windfall from the striker’s purchase, amid massive interest for the striker from three German Bundesliga clubs.
Reports from Sweden suggest that Djurgardens are desperate for Mushekwi and are prepared to pay Sundowns a figure between $2 to $4 million.
They are also keen to pay the 27-year-old a monthly salary of $80 000 to $100 000.
Talks between Sundowns and Djurgardens have already opened.
“He [Mushekwi] wants to stay at Djurgården. We have a good relationship with Mamelodi Sundowns in South Africa,” Djurgardens sporting director Bosse Andersson told www.fotbolldirekt.se.
Sundowns spokesperson Kabelo Mosito, however told Standardsport that he is in the dark on negotiations between the South Africans and Djurgardens.
“I have no information on Nyasha. We have not been briefed on what is happening as yet,” said Mosito.
Mushekwi’s Sundowns contract expires next month but the South Africans enjoy an option of extending it by another season.
Interest for Mushekwi has also emerged from another Swedish club IFK Goteborg, as well as Dutch sides FC Groningen and SC Heerenveen.
