Liverpool transfer target responds to Premier League speculation

Posted by

Stade Rennais forward Paul-Georges Ntep has spoken out about his possible transfer to the Premier League, as the attacker continues to be linked to Liverpool.

Earlier this month, the Metro revealed that Ntep was still under consideration at Anfield, despite previous admirer Brendan Rodgers—who was linked to the player during the summer [as per L’Equipe]—being replaced by German manager Jurgen Klopp.

Ntep has continued to demonstrate in Ligue 1 this season why he could be a key figure for the Reds. The forward is a versatile and explosive operator and has managed three assists and two goals so far this season—despite only managing six outings in the French top flight.

Last year, he scored nine goals and contributed five assists in 35 outings for Rennes.

Ntep, who was capped by France for the first time earlier this season, has also been linked with a move to Bayern Munich [Telefoot via L’Equipe], while Paris Saint-Germain are also understood to be keen on his services [L’Equipe].

Speaking to Winamax [as per Le 10 Sport], the forward has hinted that he would be tempted by the prospect of playing in the EPL.

“After the Euros, the Premier League?” Ntep began. “We’ll see, it’s not really the subject [right now].

“For now, I have a stress fracture to heal and I am awaiting the results.

“For everything else, we will have time to think about it. The Premier League is an interesting league, as is the Bundesliga. “
