Moussa Konate: Keen on moving to the Premier League

Konate spoke of his desire to join a Premier League club in the summer after impressing with Senegal at the London Olympics but eventually opted for a Russian switch, joining FC Krasnodar.

However, the 19-year-old has struggled to settle in Russia since arriving from Maccabi Tel Aviv in August and is already targeting a European move.

Southampton are believed to be monitoring the striker, while Ligue 1 trio Bordeaux, Sochaux and Rennes have all been linked.

Reports have surfaced suggesting his agent is in England working on a move to bring him to the Premier League and Konate would relish the switch.

He told Le Sport: "I have not settled in Russia and would welcome an opportunity to play in England or France."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
