Gabriel Özkan [ˈœzkan] (born May 23, 1986 in Stockholm) is a Swedish-Assyrian football player who currently plays for IF Brommapojkarna Gabriel joined AIK in the summer of 2006 from Brommapojkarna, after coming through their youth academy and eventually becoming a first-team player, although still being a teenager.


On November 14, 2006, he made his debut for the Swedish Under-21 football team against France. He has struggled with injuries which has cast a shade on his future career in the game. He is regarded as one of the best prospects in Swedish football but he hasn't been able to play football regularly during the last seasons following a series of hamstring injuries.[1] His Brazilian teammates nicknames him as "the new Kaka".[2]
