World Cup star sets sights on January Premier League move

Published Add your comment

Ghana midfielder Anthony Annan is targeting a January move to the Premier League.

Arsenal and Manchester United have been tipped as potential suitors of the 24-year-old who has his sights set on a dream transfer.

Annan's profile rose drastically at the World Cup; starring for the Black Stars as they stormed to the quarter-final.

The Rosenborg ace has since made no secret of his desire to secure a move to England in order to further his career.

Manchester United are reportedly the frontrunners for Annan, but Arsenal are still in with a chance of pipping their rivals to his signature.

It was claimed earlier in the summer that Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger have both been keeping tabs on the ex-IK Start holding-man and his agent now expects a conclusion to the transfer saga in the New Year.

"I spoke to a number of Premier League clubs over the summer but we couldn't complete a move," Lars Petter Fosdahl told talkSPORT.

"We still hope something will happen in January - it's no secret Anthony feels it would be a great honour to move to a big club in England."

Annan is not the only player Arsenal and Manchester United are allegedly fighting to sign in January.

Danish goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is also thought to be destined for a move to either Old Trafford or the Emirates.
