Spartak Moscow’s Czech midfielder Alex Kral has spoken to his home country’s press ahead of their crucial clash against Kosovo on Thursday.

The 21 year old joined Russian club Spartak Moscow at the start of the season from Slavia Prague and has impressed for Domenico Tedesco’s side since arriving in Moscow.

This has led to reports of interest from Everton, with the English press linking the youngster to the Toffees in recent weeks.

Speaking to iSport about reports he was being monitored by Everton, Kral revealed it’s his dream to play in the English top-flight: “Of course, the Premier League is my dream. But you must be ready. I don’t want to go to the Premier League just to sit on the bench. I want to play regularly if I go there.

“I am taking step by step. So far this season, I played for two different clubs so it’s not possible for me to join another club at least until the end of the current campaign.”

Kral has made 8 appearances for the Russian side so far this season and is under contract with Spartak until June 2024.

Since making his debut against Brazil earlier this year, Kral has made seven appearances for the Czech Republic. The young midfielder could have the chance to showcase his talents at Euro 2020, with his country currently second in their group.
