Highly rated Slovenian midfielder Kevin Kampl has expressed his desire to play for Arsenal FC in the future.
The 23-year-old is considered among the best young talents to have come out of Slovenia recent times. Kampl, who started his career with Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen, currently plays for Austrian side Red Bull Salzburg. He has been in superb form since joining the club in 2012 from VfR Aalen and has added goals to his game. The central midfielder, who is versatile enough to also play as a playmaker or on the right wing, has scored 10 goals this season, two of which came in the Europa League.
Back in September last year, Salzburg extended Kampl’s contract till 2018 sensing growing interest in the midfielder among a lot of European club. The Slovenian international has now admitted that although he would like to return to the Bundesliga one day, he dreams of playing for Arsenal in the Premier League. Kampl is clearly in love to the Gunners’ style of play under Arsene Wenger and expressed it in an interview.
“England has its own charm and London is a unique place.
“There’s also Arsenal, the club that I like very much because of their style of football.
“Sometimes when I watch their games, I close my eyes and dream of how it would be if I was there playing for them.
“This certainly is a dream and I hope that one day it will come true for me which is why I’m always giving my all during training sessions.” – Kampl said in an interview.
Despite his desire to represent Arsenal, a move to the London club seems highly unlikely in the near past considering the club’s current depth in the midfield, but looking at his talent, he won’t be shabby addition for the Gunners.
