Wolfsburg defender Sebastiaan Bornauw has confirmed he had offers from Crystal Palace and Norwich City this summer but elected to stay in Germany for the time being.
Bornauw swapped Cologne for Wolfsburg in a €13.5m deal in the summer, continuing an upward trajectory that started with Anderlecht’s youth side in 2014.
Before the move to Wolfsburg, he was linked with a move to the Premier League, with reports stating that Crystal Palace were ‘trying’ to sign him.
He eventually stayed in Germany but later confirmed he had an offer from the Eagles, as well as newly-promoted Norwich City.
In that interview back in September, he confirmed the interest of both clubs, as well as stating that he would like to move to the Premier League at some point.
That’s an opinion he’s shared again, this time with Het Laatste Nieuws, who recently held a discussion with the 22-year-old about his career so far and where it may go in future.
“I can taste the Champions League here at a German top club; this was the best choice. I am very happy here,” he told the newspaper.
“I am not thinking too much ahead yet, but one day I would like to play in the Premier League. That has been a dream since I was little.
“Norwich and Crystal Palace were interested, as was Lazio, but Wolfsburg was the best choice at the time. The Bundesliga is not inferior to the Premier League, but one day, I want to make the step to England.”
