Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham United have joined other Premier League sides in chasing Noah Okafor.
Last month, Calciomercato stated Leeds are AC Milan’s main competitor to sign the Red Bull Salzburg star. On Tuesday, Sky Deutschland journalist Florian Plettenberg reported that Liverpool and Manchester City are showing interest in him.
The 22-year-old’s suitors from England are growing, as Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham have now been added to the list.
It’s claimed the three London clubs have ‘asked for information’ about the striker. It’s not made clear whether the English trio asked the player’s camp or his employer.
The attacker hopes to impress for Switzerland at the World Cup so that he can ‘greet’ his club. His ‘main choice is the Premier League’.
Arsenal, Chelsea and West Ham are in the mix to sign Okafor, and the Austrian side are asking for €35m to part ways with him.
Okafor’s suitors will be delighted to know it is possible for them to sign him, likely in the winter market. The door for his transfer has been opened by Salzburg sporting director Christoph Freund.
“I think there will be a bit more going on in the transfer market than in recent years. Okafor really took off last year. I hope he plays a good World Cup, then the Noah Okafor stock can become very interesting. I’m not ruling it out,” Freund told Sky Sport Austria.
