According to the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, the 23-year-old goalkeeper will switch to the Hanseatic city for a fee of around 980,000 euros.

Johansson played 16 games for Malmö last season after regular goalkeeper Johan Dahlin was injured. The 1.94-meter-tall keeper had previously gained experience in more than 111 competitive games in the first and second Swedish leagues during three loan spells.

If Johansson does find his way to Hamburg, he will compete with current first choice Daniel Heuer Fernandes for the regular spot between the posts in the future.
