Just days after Watford appointed Javi Gracia as their manager in January 2018, they signed Dodi Lukebakio from Anderlecht.

The winger was not included in the Spaniard’s plans at Vicarage Road for this season, which is why he was sent out on loan to Fortuna Düsseldorf last summer.

He’s scored 14 goals in all competitions,  including a hat-trick against Bayern Munich in November and a goal against Niko Kovač’s side earlier this month. His performances for the Bundesliga outfit have seen him draw attention from Schalke and RB Leipzig.

On April 17th, we carried a report from Sport Bild, who explained the Premier League side ‘want to make cash’ from the forward’s sale and around €25m is sufficient to part ways with the Belgian.

Lukebakio has now given an interview to the same publication and during the course of the chat, the 21-year-old was asked if he will  continue playing in Germany after his loan deal with Fortuna Düsseldorf expires.

“I have people around me whom I trust. My advisers Jeremy Pastel and Mohamed Faiech listen to offers to examine options and we will look at what’s best for me,” he told Sport Bild.

“If a player is busy with where he plays in the future, he cannot concentrate on his actual work.”

When further questioned (‘how much does the interest of the bigger clubs honour you?’) he said, “That’s a great feeling, of course. That pushes me and I must enjoy now.” 

“I know where I come from. And I know that everything can be over very quickly. A bad injury – and suddenly everything is over. Now I keep shooting my goals, and then you’ll see me play at a dream club someday.”
