England are plotting to convince Elanga to ditch Sweden for international duties.
The Manchester United man has been a revelation under manager Ralf Rangnick and has started games ahead of Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford with reports rife that the player might be sweet-talked by the English FA for a change of allegiance.
The 19-year-old joined United when he was 12 and has lived in the UK long enough to represent the Three Lions according to reports from The Sun.
Born in Sweden to a Cameroonian father, Elanga has represented Sweden at the junior levels after playing for Malmo at a very early age; the player racking up eight appearances for the Sweden U21 side.
Not only has Elanga featured in eight games for United this season, but he also started the last three matches.
He opened his account this season in United’s 3-1 win over Brentford earlier in the month and there are reports that Sweden manager Janne Andersson had hoped to include him in a scheduled 24-man tour of Portugal this week but Rangnick blocked that last month.
The Swedish FA however are said not to be in any panic mode as they expect the player to be part of their World Cup play-off semi-final against the Czech Republic in March.
