Indian Super League outfit Kerala Blasters FC wants to sign Australian defender Aleksandar Susjnar. Both the club and Aleksanadar’s agent are in close talks if we go according to the rumours.
It is not hidden anymore that the Blasters want to rebuild their team in order to compete for the league title. They have sold most of their foreign players and have hired a new manager also.
Aleksandar who is a 25-year-old defender would be perfect for the job to lead the defence. He currently plays for Macarthur FC and has made 25 appearances for them.

Susjnar is from Perth, made his senior debut in Europe playing with the Lithuanian side Ekranas in A Lyga season 2013 and 2014. Then he returned to Australia and played for Perth SC in the 2015 National Premier Leagues. Next, he joined Leitava Jonava playing with them in the 2016 A Lyga.
After that he joined Romanian Liga 1 club Gaz Metan Mediaz signed him and Susjnar played with them until winter break when he joined the Czech Republic and joined FK Teplica.

Later on, he joined A-league’s expansion club Macarthur FC.
Aleksandar on the International level used to represent Serbia, having made only 1 international appearance for the U-17 Serbian team. However, by January 2018 he made his international debut for the Australian U-23 team. He received his first senior cap in 2018 for a friendly game against Norway.
Susjnar would be a major upgrade for the team. If Kerala Blasters really manage to sign Susjnar, then without a doubt, the Blasters would be able to give other teams, a run for their money.
