Swedish top flight side IFK Norrkoping are in danger of being priced out of a move to sign West Ham United starlet Sead Haksabanovic on a permanent basis.
The 20-year-old is currently on loan in Sweden with Norrkoping and the club have been impressed by his upturn in form in recent weeks.
Norrkoping are interested in signing Haksabanovic on a permanent basis and West Ham are willing to sell the attacking midfielder.
However, according to Swedish daily SportExpressen, West Ham have slapped a £1.6m asking price on the player's head.
The price is a high one for Norrkoping and the club face competition from Italian Serie A outfit Fiorentina.
The Italian club have scouted Haksabanovic in Norrkoping's last three games as they run the rule over him as a potential signing.
Haksabanovic is under contract at West Ham until the summer of 2022 and he is due to remain on loan in Sweden until next summer.
The midfielder has made 19 appearances for Norrkoping over the course of this season, scoring once and providing five assists for his team-mates.
Norrkoping currently sit in seventh in the Swedish top flight.
