Nigerian striker Gift Orban has revealed that his dream is to play in the English Premier League but would turn down a move to join Arsenal for the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City or Liverpool.
The 20-year-old who is set to be one of the biggest transfer targets for some of the top clubs in Europe in the summer has lit up the Belgian Jupiler League scoring 19 goals in 19 appearances across all competitions since joining KAA Gent during the January transfer window from Norwegian side Stabæk for €3.30m.
He’s been outspoken about his dream of playing in the EPL and had insinuated that he would be looking to leave the Belgian league in the summer for greener pasture despite Genk stating that they have no intention of selling him.
Should the move to the Premier League materialise anytime soon, Orban already has a couple of preferred destinations in mind but that does not include Arsenal as he feels they are not. Serious club when it comes to contending for titles.
“Playing in a big league,” he told the Het Laatste Nieuws per Sportswitness when asked what his ‘craziest football dream’ is.
“At a club where I feel comfortable and where I play. The Premier League is my ultimate dream. Manchester United, Liverpool or Manchester City (laughs).
“I don’t really like Arsenal that much – it’s like they don’t want to win titles. They play and sell players – that’s it. I want to go somewhere where they win prizes. At Real Madrid they don’t have time for tiki-taka, there they just grab titles.”
Orban in Belgium has been termed a hat-trick specialist having scored three hat-tricks for the club since joining the in January.
