As Italian outlet Club Doria 46 today features a report saying Sampdoria defender Omar Colley has changed agents, the player’s intention is made very clear: he wants a move to the Premier League.

The report points out many times that the 29-year-old is looking to play in English football, and that’s why he stopped working with agent Cheikh Fall to now be represented by Fali Ramadami.

There are a few Premier League sides said to be interested in landing Colley, with Everton and Leeds United among them.

The Toffees and Whites are said to ‘have their sights’ on the Gambia international, even though it’s not made clear how advanced their efforts are to land the player.

The report points out that despite Colley’s big intention to move to the Premier League, the transfer would be more likely to happen in the summer. That’s because he’s now out to play the Africa Cup of Nations, and will still be unavailable during a quarantine period when landing back in Europe. That could ‘make some suitors desist’ of a January deal.

That’s why Sampdoria are hopeful of having the defender until the end of the season. It isn’t said how much Everton or Leeds would have to pay for the move, while the player is currently valued by Transfermarkt at €5m.
