Gift Orban dreams of “playing in a big league,” and in this case, the Premier League, as he dismissed the idea of joining Arsenal.
Gfit Orban is one of the rising stars from the Belgian League. After a stellar season with 19 goals and two assists in all competitions, the Nigerian striker dreams of “playing in a big league’ as the summer window approaches.
Orban truly made a mark in the Europa Conference league this season, as there are chances he may not remain with KAA Gent beyond the current season. The media could keep track of the 19-goal star ahead of the summer window, with a move to the Premier League likely for the striker.
Some of the biggest clubs in the Premier League have kept constant tabs on the striker. Chelsea, Tottenham, and Manchester United are keen on the 19-goal star, but he also has his preferences if a chance arrives to join a giant club.
Orban also has Barcelona’s attention, but whether the Catalans could gather the funds to sign him remains the question. Hence, the striker could readily move to the Premier League if given the opportunity. However, he has dismissed the idea of joining Arsenal.
The 19-goal star insisted Arsenal are not the club that attracts his attention as he commented on their lack of trophies. Moreover, he suggested it would be a dream to play for one of Manchester United, Liverpool, or Manchester City through his comments on Het Laatste Nieuws via Sport Witness.
Orban said, “At a club where I feel comfortable AND where I play. The Premier League is my ultimate dream. Manchester United, Liverpool or Manchester City.”
“I don’t really like Arsenal that much – it’s like they don’t want to win titles. They play and sell players – that’s it. I want to go somewhere where they win prizes. At Real Madrid they don’t have time for tiki-taka, there they just grab titles.”
As for Arsenal, they are not particularly linked with a move for Orban. While the striker has prolific numbers, Mikel Arteta may not heed those words from the Nigerian. The Gunners boss is already looking to sign a new frontman, with Dusan Vlahovic a key target, among others.
Manchester United will need a new striker in the summer, but they might even go for a more established name than a young rising star like Orban. As for the remaining ones, like Liverpool and Manchester City, they are unlikely to dip into the market for a new frontman.
Has Arsenal shown any interest in him; rubbish!
