Portuguese newspaper O Jogo today features an interview with West Bromwich Albion midfielder Filip Krovinovic.
The 24-year-old is currently having a loan spell from Lisbon side Benfica, and still has no idea which club he’ll playing for next season.
O Jogo writes that a buying option hasn’t been negotiated in the deal, and with the Baggies making it clear they’d like to keep the player, his future is quite open.
Quizzed about that, Krovinovic claims he knows nothing about it, even though he makes it clear he’d love to stay with West Brom in case they clinch promotion.
“I don’t know anything about it , I just know what the media is writing about, here in Birmingham or Croatia,” Krovinovic told O Jogo.
“I don’t know what will happen but it’s clear that every player in the world has a dream of playing in the Premier League.”
Regarding the injury which left him out of the Croatian national team for a while, Krovinovic claims he’s focused on his comeback.
“Right now, I see it as the most important thing to be able to play for Croatia. My priority at this stage is to stay healthy, something that didn’t happen at Benfica, where I had a knee operation.
“The national team is an objective that I would also like to fulfil. I hope this can happen now. At first I was unlucky, at a time when I was about to go. Now, if I continue as I have been, I think it will happen.”
Speaking of his time at West Brom, Krovinovic says he’s “enjoying the moment and liking it very much“. He also claims he expects the Baggies to be playing the Premier League next season, since “We spent the whole season between first and second place”.
