Premier League move interests Borussia Dortmund's Neven Subotic

Published Add your comment

Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic has revealed he is interested to play in the Premier League at some point in his career.

Ever since Jurgen Klopp's arrival at Liverpool last October, several first-team players at the Westfalonstadion have been linked with a move to Anfield, Subotic included.

The Serbian centre-back was denied a potential move in January, yet it appears he could have the Premier League in his sights.

In an interview with Transfermarkt, as per ESPN, he said: "I've got to be honest and say that the English Premier League is very suitable for my way of playing football.

"The intensity and physical nature of the game are very attractive for me."

Subotic was ruled out for the rest of the season on Friday after being diagnosed with thrombosis in the arm by Dortmund's medical team.

The 27-year-old, whose contract with BVB runs until 2018, has long played second fiddle to Mats Hummels and Sokratis Papastathopoulos and found first-team opportunities hard to come by as a result.

He remains committed to Dortmund, though: "It is not like I am looking for a transfer, I just want to be playing.

"And I want that to be happening as often as possible. I’d love to be in Dortmund."

Subotic admitted, however, that he would consider a move away if needs must.

"If it’s not possible here then I’ll have to give it some thought," he continued. "To be quite honest I’ve not given leaving the Westfalenstadion a second’s thought."

"I’ve learnt over recent years that nothing lasts for an eternity in football, and also that you can rarely look beyond the next three months."

Dortmund face Liverpool in the Europe League quarter-finals on Thursday in what will mark the return of former manager Klopp, who enjoyed seven prosperous years in the Bundesliga.
