Ghana's No. 1

Ghana defender Alexander Djiku interested in Premier League move

Published on: 25 May 2022

Ghana defender Alexander Djiku has expressed interest in joining the English Premier League as he nears departure from Strasbourg.

Djiku's current contract has one year left on it, and while he has been offered a long-term extension, he has shown little interest in committing to the club.

Djiku "is thinking about leaving," according to Strasbourg president Marc Keller.

The centre-back had an impressive campaign and at the end of the season, he spoke about his desire to play in the Premier League.

"I have spoken a lot about the Premier League with my compatriots André Ayew, Jordan Ayew and Thomas Partey. It is a spectacular league which gives you the opportunity to express yourself and it is often a very open game. It is one of the best championships in the world and obviously, it makes you want to play there one day.

"The stadiums, the intensity of the matches, the famous Boxing Day and then the passion of the fans in this country, it's just great. think I will feel very comfortable there," the Black Star told Sky Sports.

Djiku made 30 appearances in Ligue 1 this season, scoring a goal but Strasbourg narrowly missed out on European football for next season.

The French-born Ghanaian played a key role as Ghana qualified for the FIFA World Cup at the expense of Nigeria in the playoffs in March.

He has been linked with moves to Villareal and Sevilla in Spain.
