Emmanuel Badu open to Premier League move
Udinese midfielder Emmanuel Badu has confessed his desire to play in the Premier League.
Despite being a key member of the Udinese squad, Badu admitted that he is flattered by the interest being shown in him and would be open to moving to England:
“It is all players’ dream to play in the biggest league in the world,” he told SkySports.
“I am doing my best here, Udinese is a very good team.
“I am flattered by clubs showing interest in me. My performances have been good, but I need to improve.”
Fellow countryman Kwadwo Asamoah left the club during the summer, signing for Juventus, and Badu has confessed that he misses his team-mate:
“I miss the banter with Asamoah, he has been a brother to me.
“I wished him good luck, he deserved to go to a big club like Juventus, he is a big talent.”
Badu began his career with Berekum Arsenal in his home nation.
He caught the eye of Udinese’s scouts during trails with Middlesbrough and a loan spell at Spanish club Recreativo Huelva, tempting the club to swoop for his signature in 2010.
Despite being just 22-year-of-age, Badu has already made in excess of 30 appearances at senior international level.
