Monaco midfielder Jerko Leko is said to be heading to England in the upcoming transfer window with Chelsea known admirers.
The Croatian appears to be frustrated over the lack of 1-st team participation since the arrival of Monaco’s new coach; Guy Lacombe and if the rumours are true then it is Stamford Bridge he is headed for.
The 29 y.o. international told L’Equipe: “I cannot be content with only a few appearances.
” I am no longer 20 years old…and I want to go somewhere else.
“Playing in either Germany or England is an option for a future move.”
In the summer of 2008, Leko was a reported interest of Glasgow Celtic, and his compatriot Dado Prso (a former Glasgow Rangers striker) was said to have advised him in favour of such a move.
Last summer Leko was also linked with EPL newly promoted outfit Wolverhampton, who could not afford his wages, a problem that Chelsea will not encounter.
4 Croats already play in EPL, namely Corluka and Kranjcar (Tottenham), Eduardo (Arsenal) and Klasnic (Bolton).
