Report: New York Red Bulls defender Matt Miazga set to undergo medical, sign with Premier League club

Statue Of Liberty

The 20-year-old US international, who holds a Polish passport, has been linked with Manchester City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea.

New York Red Bulls defender Matt Miazga looks set to secure a dream move to the Premier League.

According to ESPN FC, the 20-year-old centre-back has left the US national team’s January training camp in Los Angeles to travel to England and is expected to undergo a medical and sign with an unnamed top-flight club within the next 24 hours.

The Daily Mail, who first reported the story, claim that Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool are all potential destinations for the one-time capped American, whose price tag is said to be around £3.5 million.

Interest in the highly-rated Miazga comes after he enjoyed a breakout 2015 campaign in MLS, establishing as a regular starter with his hometown Red Bulls and proving instrumental in helping them win the Supporters’ Shield title as the team with the best regular season record.

The 6ft 3in stopper's impressive performances saw him finish fourth in the voting for the league’s Defender of the Year award, while he also earned his US national team debut as a second-half substitute in November’s opening World Cup qualifier against Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Speculation has since been rife that he could be set for a move overseas this winter, and Goal USA reported recently that the youngster signed with an agency back by infamous player advisor Kia Joorabchian shortly after impressing at last summer's Under-20 World Cup in order to help him secure a switch to Europe.

He is believed to have turned down offers on a new Red Bulls contract in the meantime, and with just 12 months left to run on his current deal, the club have been left with little choice but to cash in on his signature now.

The New Jersey native, who holds a Polish passport by way of his parents, has previously spoken of his Premier League ambitions, telling FourFourTwo in November: “The EPL is a very intriguing proposition. I love that league - it’s very competitive and there's a lot of passion involved.

“Hopefully one day I will have an opportunity to play there. I believe my skillset fits the way football is played there.”

Only two months later, it looks like that day may be extremely close.
