And such form has now attracted interest, with reports suggesting that the teenager could be available for a fee of around £1.2million.

Lahne recently admitted that a move abroad would prove tempting, but for now his focus remains on his current club.

Speaking to Sportbladet, he said: "No ... I do not think so much about that [moving abroad].

"I'm thinking more about what to do here right now. Be better match for match.

"So it is very important to focus on the next match, instead of everything that's happening around one.

"Long-term, the goal is to go abroad, but in the short term, keeping BP in the Allsvenskan."
