Sergio Carlos Strandberg (born 14 April 1996) is a Swedish footballer who plays for KVC Westerlo on loan from Club Brugge, as a striker.
Strandberg, who has Mozambican heritage, grew up in Backa, Gothenburg where he joined the local lower league side Backa IF as a six-year-old. In 2005 the club merged with Hisingstads IS to form Hisingsbacka FC which is where Strandberg stayed and eventually got to make his first team debut in the seventh tier of Swedish football at age 15.
In 2012 he signed a youth contract with Gothenburg based Allsvenskan club BK Häcken. There he became the top goalscorer of the U17 league and was moved up to the U19 team at the end of the year. In 2013 he continued scoring goals for the U19 and U21 teams which in the summer resulted in Häcken signing him to a 4.5-year professional contract.
In the summer of 2014, he was subject for a move to German side Borussia Dortmund but the player failed the medical, so the transfer did not materialize. However, in the following transfer window, he joined Russian Premier League side CSKA Moscow on a 5-year contract, the 2nd of February 2015.
On 21 August 2015, Strandberg joined Ural on loan till the end of 2015.
On 31 March 2016, Strandberg moved to AIK Fotboll on a loan deal until mid-July. After scoring seven goals in ten games Strandberg caught negative attention by grabbing team mate Daniel Sundgren by the throat after a 3–2 win against Falkenberg causing a two-game suspension.
On 5 January 2017, he moved to Belgium to Club Brugge KV, signing a contract that will run until 2021. Twelve days later,, he was sent on loan to Westerlo until the end of the 2016–17 season.
In September 2013 Strandberg was selected to the Sweden national under-17 football team that would compete in the 2013 FIFA U-17 World Cup. As his mother is Portuguese with Mozambican roots, he could potentially represent one of those countries at international level, should he be selected.
