Bayern Munich prospect Arijon Ibrahimovic is considered one of the jewels of the club’s campus and had the opportunity to practice with the first-team on Monday.
According to Bild, (as captured by Tz), made a strong impression:
In the first session on Monday, Arijon Ibrahimovic, one of Bayern’s great talents, was on the training pitch with the current short squad of the professional team. At Säbener Straße, the attacking midfielder was allowed to compete with the remaining professionals such as Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting or newcomer Dayot Upamecano. According to a report in Bild, the teenager cut a good figure and played smartly. He even scored a goal in the final game.
Ibrahimovic, who is not related to Zlatan, is still just 15-years-old and plays mostly as an attacking midfielder. His course to stardom, though, really kicked off last season when he played nine games with Bayern Munich’s U-17 side, racking up two goals and three assists.

The ability to get in front of Julian Nagelsmann at such a young age is a fantastic opportunity for the youngster. While a place on the first team is still a long way out, Ibrahimovic seems to be on his way to an eventual spot on the senior team.
But wait....there’s more!
