Zimbabwe and Club Brugge Star Marvelous Nakamba has revealed his ambition to play in the English Premier League.

Nakamba is eyeing a move to the English Premier League just months after joining Belgian top-flight football side where he has been a revelation.

The combative midfielder joined the club in June from the Netherlands for a reported £4 million fee on a four-year deal.

He has started 17 of the 19 league matches for Brugge, who currently top the league table with 47 points, eight clear of closest rivals Sporting Charleroi.

Following his impressive showing at Brugge, he has been linked with a move to European giants such as Liverpool, who are reportedly leading the chase for his signature.

“Yes, some people told me that I have a game cut for England because of my qualities, it’s (a move is) possible,” Nakamba said.

“It was the only European championships we could watch at home (Zimbabwe). We’ll see later, it’s nice to know that some clubs are watching me.

“What’s important now is for me to be successful with the club and my national team.

“For great competitions, here we have a good team and an excellent midfield where I feel very comfortable alongside players like (Hans) Vanaken or (Ruud) Vormer,”

In addition, the Reds are leading the race where they have identified the 25-year as a potential replacement for Emre Can, who is likely to leave the club in January.

On the other hand, Newcastle United are also believed to be preparing a bid, although Nakamba has publicly stated he will prefer a move to Anfield if they come knocking.
