Ezekiel chasing dream switch

Standard Liege striker Imoh Ezekiel has welcomed reports linking him with an imminent move to England or France.

Last Updated: 14/03/13 at 11:00 Post Comment

The 19-year-old striker has been in fine form this season, netting on a consistent basis in the Belgian top-flight.

He is under contract until 2017, but a summer approach for his services could see him freed from that agreement.

Lille are said to be keen on taking Ezekiel to Ligue 1, while West Bromwich Albion are understood to consider the youngster to be a potential replacement for unsettled frontman Peter Odemwingie.

Ezekiel is aware of the speculation surrounding his future and admits it would be 'a dream' if he were to secure a switch to one of Europe's most prestigious divisions.

He said: "I want to play one day away from Belgium. To play in the English league would be a dream come true.

"I have been linked with many teams, but a French team or an English team would be attractive to me."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
