Amoah Eyes Premiership

By Times Sports Reporter -

Matthew Amoah is hopeful that his current form can help him seal a move to the Premier League with Everton or Middlesbrough in the January transfer window.

The Ghanaian international is in magnificent form in the Dutch Eredivisie, with his nine goals in six matches shooting NAC into the top spot on the back of five consecutive wins.

The 27-year-old, who scored a goal  in the Black Stars' World Cup qualifier against Lesotho last week, admitted his dream to join a Premier League club.

The Toffees and Boro have kept tabs on his progress and rumour suggests NAC may be unable to refuse a January bid for the ex-Borussia Dortmund man.

He said: “If a club offers a few million, then perhaps that will make NAC happy.

“I've always dreamed of playing in England. As a boy I always thought about Arsenal. But also hearing about clubs like Everton and Middlesbrough is wonderful.”

¨ Black Stars' coach, Milovan Rajevac has disclosed that he will turn his attention to scouting more Ghanaian players after the Black Stars tackle their African Nations Championships qualifier against Nigeria.

Rajevac will be in charge of the two-leg games against Nigerians for the championships reserved for home based players before setting his sights back on strengthening his side for the resumption of the 2010 World Cup qualifiers.

“There is enough time to prepare for the next qualifying games and for me, it is important to have two excellent players in every position,” he told revealed.

“It is very important to go to Europe and see players and also important for the national team to play some top class European opposition before the qualifiers begin.”

Rajevac's tenure as Ghana coach has already seen him lose two out of three international games but he feels his side will get better with time.

“When we have Michael Essien back and Asamoah Gyan fit again, we will be a much better team then,” he said.

There are a number of players who will eagerly look forward to the Serbian's scouting mission.

Derek Boateng has been on the fringes of the squad since the World Cup in Germany while Francis Dickoh despite some outstanding performances for Utrecht FC continues to be sidelined from the team.
