Wales star reveals he has ‘offers from around world’ after Euro 2016 heroics

Wales striker Hal Robson-Kanu could be set to become one of the biggest winners of Euro 2016 as the offers continue to roll in.

The 27-year-old scored a stunning goal in his side’s 3-1 win over Belgium to reach the last four in France, and his more immediate focus will undoubtedly be on helping Chris Coleman’s men book their spot in Sunday’s final.

However, as a free agent with his contract with Reading expiring at the end of last month, he now faces a tough decision on what his next move at club level will be.

It doesn’t appear as though he’s short of options though, as many clubs have been left impressed with his overall contribution for Wales this summer.

“There’s offers from around the world,” Robson-Kanu told BBC Sport.

“I’ve made no secret of my desire to play in the Premier League and if that’s the best place for me then I’ll be there.

“I made a decision to run my contract at Reading down. I’ve been there 12 years, given a lot of service and felt it was the best decision for myself and my career to decide where I go next.

“I’ve been aware of clubs coming in for me in the past, bigger clubs and for whatever reason it didn’t happen so it’s probably one of the best decisions of my life.

“It’s funny, a lot of people are making a big deal of it. I had offers before the tournament started. Good offers from good, progressive clubs, but I made a decision to wait until after the tournament.”

Robson-Kanu scored just five goals last season though, so many clubs should be wary of the fact that he isn’t likely to be the answer to their goalscoring problems moving forward.

Nevertheless, his overall presence and ability to lead the line makes him a useful player to have in the squad, and he is certainly proving his worth and playing his role in Wales’ success this summer.
