Ghanaian starlet impressed by Black Cats.
Inter Milan midfielder Alfred Duncan has admitted that he is flattered by the recent links to Premier League side Sunderland, according to Sky Sports.
The highly rated 20-year-old is regarded as one of Ghana’s brightest hopes and has often been compared to Michael Essien. He has made just three appearances for the Nerazzuri but has impressed during a season long loan spell with Serie B side Livorno where he helped them return to the top flight.
And though he declined to indicate a preference, he did confess that attracting the interest of a Premier League club is very flattering.
“I am flattered by the interest of Sunderland. I know the scout of Sunderland has been watching me.
“To be honest, though, nothing has been done and Inter will have a big say if I leave Inter or not.
“Fans compare me with Essien and if I can have half of his career I will be very happy.
“He is the best midfielder ever in Ghana. He played box-to-box, could break play up and could dictate play at the same time.”
Duncan made 23 appearances for Livorno this season and managed to get himself on the scoresheet twice.
