Wolfsburg midfielder Diego has hinted that he could be set to move to the Premier League, with Southampton and Arsenal both reportedly monitoring the Brazilian. Both clubs are monitoring the midfielder’s contract situation at the Volkswagen Arena, joining a long line of European sides keen on signing the South American playmaker.
The 28-year old has been crucial to Wolfsburg’s in Bundesliga this season. But Diego is still yet to agree to a new deal with the German club and has been linked with a move to England in the summer.
There will be no shortage of interest in the former Porto and Werder Bremen star, and Diego admits he could be tempted to take on a Premier League challenge if an offer came his way, hinting at a possible move to the ambitious Saints, but the midfielder insisted his main focus at the moment was on helping Wolfsburg return to the Champions League.
“I know there is interest from Premier League clubs. Southampton have great organisation and discipline and big talents like Adam Lallana. But again there is nothing concrete.”
“Playing in England is a very attractive option at the peak of my career but I’m focusing on helping Wolfsburg get to the Champions League.”
After a sensational start to his career in European football with Porto and Werder Bremen, Diego’s career stalled following a switch to Juventus in 2009, but the 28-year-old enjoyed a return to form last season and has been one of Wolfsburg’s best players so far this year.
