German World Cup star eyes Premier League move
One of this year’s World Cup stars could soon be lighting up the Premier League if he gets his way according to most world cup 2010 live betting experts.
Mesut Ozil, a 21-year-old midfielder, has emerged as one of Germany’s best players, taking advantage of Michael Ballack’s absence to stamp his authority on the tournament.
Speaking to the Sun, Ozil explained that although he is currently focused on the World Cup, once it is over he wants to move somewhere he can win trophies, and the Premier League is high on his list of potential destinations.
He said: “Trophies are what matters to me. There are two teams in England [Manchester United and Chelsea] always at the top and of course that’s attractive.”
However, he added that the same goes for La Liga so any English clubs interested in him could face stiff competition for his signature.
Of course, there’s a long history of players having impressive World Cups, making big money moves and then flopping. Names like Stephane Guivarc’h and Kleberson immediately spring to mind.
Given the over-inflated prices, and sub-standard performances, which are often associated with such signings, the World Cup is no longer the shop window it used to be.
However, Ozil has already established himself at Werder Bremen has made almost 150 club appearances despite his tender age. Manchester United were also linked with him when he was a teenager, so it’s clear the talent is there.
Of course, there are still some questions to be answered about any possible transfer, not least whether Bremen will be willing to let him go and if anyone will be willing to meet their asking price.
However, regardless of whether Germany are involved in World cup 2010 final betting, it’s clear Ozil has had an excellent World Cup and has a bright future.
Whether the Premier League is the right step for him to take now is questionable, but I doubt too many fans would complain if he turned up at their club.
