Nuremberg, AIK chase Chibsah

German side Nuremberg are in discussions with Swedish outfit Gefle IF about signing their Ghanaian midfielder Yusif Chibsah.


But the Bundesliga II club face intense competition from Swedish giants AIK Stockholm for the signature of the enforcer.


The 24-year-old was a hit in his debut season in the Swedish top flight, winning ten Player of the Match awards in the 25 matches he played in the season.


His performance attracted interest from the clubs but the former Asante Kotoko player is relaxed about making a decision over his future.


"I am happy that my performance this season has been noticed across Europe but I am not in a rush to make a decision," Chibsah told


"The clubs have approached Gefle about signing me so I will have to wait to hear what my employers say before I make any decision."


Even though AIK Stockholm are giants in Sweden, Chibsah insists playing in Germany would fulfil his childhood dream.


"I have always been a fan of German football and to get the opportunity to play for Nuremberg is something I cherish," he said.


"AIK are a big team too but the Germany is very attractive for me. But lets wait and see how the talks go."


Chibsah was a member of the Ghanaian standby players in Germany 2006 World Cup after playing most of the matches of the qualifying round.
