Heerenveen’s Alfonso Alves is the one of the hottest foreign properties in the Netherlands at the moment and everyone is eager to get the Brazilian international. And almost inevitably, it is the English Premier League high flyers Manchester City who are heading the bid to snatch away the player from the Abe Lenstra. That is as reported by Sky Sports.
City have been linked with a host of strikers and Alves is one who would be readily available. The player himself has acknowledged that he is looking for a move to one of the bigger leagues in Europe to sustain his place in the Brazilian national side and Heerenveen haven’t posed any obstacle in his path.
Alfonso Alves told his own website:
The last few days I have spent with my family and friends in Belo Horizonte. When I return to the Netherlands I hope to complete my transfer to one of the interested clubs. I want to continue my work and stay in the picture with national coach Dunga. I want to work myself into being a first-team regular with the Brazil national side.
Even struggling Middlesbrough have joined the hunt for Alves’ precious signature It doesn’t take rocket science to figure out which club out of Man City and Boro, the player would choose, that is if he opts to head for the Premiership at all.
