Brazil international wants Chelsea, Arsenal & Liverpool after snubbing Baggies
Fenerbahce star Josef de Souza has opened up about West Brom’s offer and which Premier League clubs he would consider joining in his most recent interview.
Souza revealed that he turned down the Baggies because it was the wrong time to leave Fenerbahce and that he wants a move to a top Premier League club.
“West Brom made me an offer at the start of the season,” he told Turkish media outlet Dogan News Agency (DHA).
“You all know the fees that were being discussed, it was made public.
“Of course I want to play in the Premier League, it’s the dream of every player but it was not the right time.
“I only want to leave for a top club.
“If the day comes that the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal, Liverpool make a bid then I would consider a move.”
The Birmingham Mail reported another reason as to why Souza’s move to West Brom collapsed.
Per the source, Souza had problems acquiring a UK work permit.
The £10 million rated defensive midfielder was a top target for West Brom manager Tony Pulis.
The 28-year-old has three international caps for Brazil.
Souza joined Fenerbahce from Sao Paulo in 2015 and has started every game except the Genclerbirligi clash this season.
Fenerbahce are currently seventh in the Super Lig, eight points behind league leaders Galatasaray.
