Hertha Berlin's Adrian Ramos has said it would be hard to turn down the chance to move to England.
Hertha Berlin striker Adrian Ramos has revealed that he would be interested in a move to the Premier League.
The 27-year-old Colombian striker has an almost identical record to Borussia Dortmund forward Robert Lewandowski this season and his comments have been published on the website of popular German newspaper Bild.
“I have contract until 2015 at Hertha. But all know that the English league is the best. Which player would not play there if he gets an offer?” said Ramos.
As for his chances of getting that dream Premier League move, they probably rest on something happening this month.
The difference between this transfer window and the summer transfer window is that so many of the big sides, with higher profile players are unwilling to do big deals during the winter months.
That could create an opportunity for someone like Ramos to get a high profile move to one of the Premier League big boys in the prime of his career, as he looks to enhance his reputation in European football.
In terms of the reported interest from Arsenal and Chelsea, the rumours have been widespread across a variety of online sources such as rumour sites and forums.
There hasn’t been much in the way of mainstream press sources and sites which generally carry more concrete rumours, which leads to the suggestion that Ramos is only a suggested target for Arsenal and Chelsea as opposed to a realistic one.
He could certainly do a job for either team and both sides do need attacking support over the second half of the season but his contract doesn’t expire until 2015 and that would mean a fee.
Ask Arsene Wenger or Jose Mourinho if they’d rather pay a fee for a striker now or wait to get a European heavyweight in the summer and they’d both probably choose the latter.
