Anderlecht defender Kara Mbodj has confirmed he wants a move to the Premier League this summer. The Senegal international was linked with a move to Leicester City in the last window after the Premier League champions tabled bids for the player.
Voetbal Nieuws have reported on comments Mbodj made when asked about his future and whether he could leave Anderlecht this summer.
The defender said first he wants to win the Jupiler title with the Belgian side, and then leave in the next window. Mbodj hopes to get his dream move to England, and will turn down any offers from China and Russia.
“I want to be a champion with Anderlecht and then leave. I do not want to go China or Russia because I am too ambitious to go there. Everyone knows I dream of the Premier League,” said the Leicester City target.
Leicester City had two offers rejected by Anderlecht for Mbodji in January, with their last bid being in the region of €10m. The Belgian club were holding out for €15m.
Mbodj has been promised a move in the summer to the Premier League, and it’s quite possible Leicester City will make another attempt to sign the player.
The defender recently impressed in the Europa League against Manchester United, and showed he could be a useful addition for Leicester City.
