Arsenal target Domagoj Vida has admitted a move to the Premier League is something he has always dreamed of.
The Croatian centre-half formed a strong partnership with Liverpool’s Dejan Lovren as their team marched to the World Cup final.
Impressing numerous clubs around Europe, the Besiktas defender could end up playing for his third team in 2018 should he secure a summer move.
Vida joined Besiktas from Dynamo Kyiv in January, and rumours had suggested the 29-year-old could be packed off from the Turkish giants even before his outstanding World Cup display.
Speaking to Haber 1903 (and translated by HITC), Vida said:
I am always dreaming to play in the Premier League. I do not know if the proposals will come again in this period. I would like [Besiktas] to make it easy for me.
It therefore seems unlikely that Vida will continue his career in the Super Lig, and attention will now turn to where he may end up before the transfer window shuts (in England, at least) on Thursday.
