Klose tempted by Premier League move - reports

The success of Arsenal and Chelsea’s German stars has convinced Miroslav Klose to explore the opportunity of joining a Premier League team, according to German newspaper Bild.

As reported by the Daily Express, the article claims Klose is ready to turn down the chance to return to the Bundesliga and instead search out a move to England.

The impact made by the likes of Mesut Ozil, Per Mertesacker and Lukas Podolski at Arsenal and Andre Schurrle at Chelsea has persuaded Klose to try the Premier League.

Klose reportedly came close to joining Arsenal’s north London rivals Tottenham in 2011 once he decided to leave Bayern Munich.

Everton were also interested in the Germany striker, but Klose eventually opted for Lazio in Serie A - the first time he'd left Germany to play abroad.

But wherever he has played his football, he has been prolific. With 68 goals from 130 Germany appearances, he’s just one goal away from breaking Gerd Muller’s national goal-scoring record.

Arsenal and Chelsea both have issues up front – the Gunners rely too heavily on Olivier Giroud while Chelsea’s trio of Fernando Torres, Demba Ba and Samuel Eto’o are struggling to hit the back of the net.
