Montenegro goalkeeper sets sights on Chelsea transfer

Next Story

Montenegro goalkeeper Mladen Bozovic has used the imminent World Cup qualifier with England as an opportunity to express his desire for a transfer to the Premier League, with a move to Chelsea the ideal outcome for the 28-year-old.

Bozovic claims he almost secured a switch to England following an impressive display agains the Three Lions at Wembley during the Euro 2012 qualification process, and the shot-stopper now hopes to put himself in the shop window once again.

A move to the Premier League is the Montenegrin, currently with Hungarian club Videoton, although joining Chelsea is the ultimate ambition for Bozovic, who closely follows the progress of the Stamford Bridge club.

"After the game at Wembley (in October 2010) there was a possibility of going to England but it did not happen," he said, according to Sky Sports.

"The Premier League is where I want to be, only the Premier League. I love the football in England and I watch it all the time, I like Chelsea best of all.

"I played very good against England, especially at Wembley, and I am hoping if I do well again on Tuesday something will happen. It will be tough but all of our team has confidence."

Montenegro enter the encounter with England two points ahead of Roy Hodgson's side on the road to Brazil 2014, and could strike a significant blow to the Group H favourites on Tuesday evening.

England pipped Montenegro to qualification for Euro 2012, but Bozovic believes they can go one better this time and get one over on their higher-ranked opponents.

"We almost qualified for Euro 2012, getting to the play-offs where we played the Czech Republic, and our team is like our country - small but strong and proud," he added.

"We know England will be very difficult opponents, but we believe we can do it and our fans are so noisy and passionate they will be a big help.

"We are a team who plays well on the counter-attack and have some excellent players like Stefan Savic and Mirko Vucinic."
