The scouting department of the Greens had made a report of the 23-year-old Swedish since the first days of June, while his experienced compatriot, Marcus Berg, was also positive about his quality and personality.
Panathinaikos could had completed with success the deal with FC Randers about their international footballer back then, but technical director Gilberto Silva insisted to make a transfer move for Lautaro Rinaldi instead.
However, the Greens did not manage to reach an agreement with the administration of Argentinos Juniors and their talented striker, so they decided to approach FC Randers about Mikael Ishak once again.
The 23-year-old Swedish still wants to continue his career at Super League, but things are much more difficult right now, since his current club has increased its financial demands towards their starting price in June.
Meanwhile, manager of Panathinaikos Andrea Stramaccioni is also searching the market of his motherland for an experienced and quality striker, since he has only Marcus Berg at this position in the current squad of his team.
