Ozil attracted to Premier switch

02 July 2010 10:28
Werder Bremen and Germany midfielder Mesut Ozil has hinted he could be attracted to a move to the Premier League this summer.

Ozil has been one of the stand-out players of the finals in South Africa so far, and his performances have seen him linked to other clubs.

The 21-year-old insists he is concentrating on the World Cup, but he has also thought about his options for the future.

"The World Cup is all that matters at the moment," he is quoted as saying in The Sun.

"When I get back we can think about my future, but for now it's not something I want to give a lot of thought to. To the top players the Premier League is attractive.

"You look at what Manchester United and Chelsea have achieved over the last five years and you see it would be easy to be successful at two clubs like that.

"I see what Michael Ballack achieved at Chelsea and the quality of players he played with and the temptation becomes obvious.

"Trophies are what matters to me. There are two teams in England always at the top and of course that's attractive. But the same is true for La Liga.

"They're the strongest leagues in the world."
