Eintracht Frankfurt striker Randal Kolo Muani, who is rumoured to be on Tottenham’s radar, has admitted that he dreams of moving to the Premier League in the future.
Kolo Muani has taken his game to a new level since joining Frankfurt last summer, with eight goals and 11 assists to his name across all competitions so far (Transfermarkt).
The striker’s stock grew even further as a result of his showing for France at the World Cup, with the 24-year-old coming up with a crucial goal in Les Blues’ semi-final win over Morocco.
Foot Mercato reported at the start of this month Spurs, Bayern Munich and Liverpool had ‘knocked at the door’ for the striker, who was alleged to be valued by Frankfurt at €60m (£52.8m) on the back of his showing in Qatar.
The report explained that while the Bundesliga club were not planning on cashing in on Kolo Muani this month, they could change their minds if they receive an ‘excessive offer’.
The Frenchman has now opened up on his Premier League ambitions but played down the chances of departing Deutsche Bank Park during the current transfer window.
The former Nantes player told Sky Germany: “If possible, I’d like to stay and play in the Bundesliga. I don’t know what will happen in the next few days.
“I’m benefiting here with my speed. There’s a lot of space for me. There’s a lot of pressing, a lot of counterattacking, (and) that suits my style of play very much. The Bundesliga is the perfect league for me.
“(The Premier League) is a great league with great teams. It’s a league that every player dreams of. (But) that’s not my goal yet. With Eintracht, we have a lot of goals for the second half of the season.
“And I want to score a lot of goals. At the moment, I only think about that. I would like the Premier League in the future. But that’s still a long way off, and a dream.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Given that Kolo Muani is contracted to Frankfurt until 2027, his value is not going to drop any time soon, which is why there is not much intensive for the Bundesliga club to sell him now rather than next summer.
There could be a scramble for the 24-year-old at the end of the season but I would be surprised if Spurs express concrete interest in the Frenchman as he is at his best when operating as a centre-forward – a position where Spurs are well stocked with Kane and Richarlison.
