Leipzig’s Yoshko Gbardiol (21) is the center back that the English Premier League (EPL) is most paying attention to.
He played a big role as a representative of Croatia at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and Tottenham and Chelsea are showing great interest. His true value was also proved in the European Champions League (UCL).
Gvardiol scored an equalizer in the 25th minute of the second half in the 2022-2023 UCL round of 16 first leg against Man City held at the Red Bull Arena in Leipzig, Germany on the 23rd (Korean time), leading the team to a 1-1 draw. The future of Gbardiol was of interest today as well.
안전놀이터 However, Leipzig manager Marco Rose drew attention by warning not to dream. “Gvardiol will continue to play for Leipzig next season. I am a manager and I am demanding it. Gbardiol is happy here,” he said.
However, Bardiol has stated that he wants to play in the EPL. “Gbardiol has said he wants to play in the Premier League, but he hasn’t said when,” Rose said.
Gbardiol’s contract with Leipzig runs until 2027. Chelsea offered a transfer fee of 90 million euros (about 124 billion won), but Leipzig rejected it. Despite Gbardio’s advance into the EPL, Leipzig holds the key.
