Bayer Leverkusen tried to sign Borna Sosa in January, but the Croatian left-back ultimately stayed after Stuttgart turned down a €10 million bid from ‘Die Werkself’.
In an interview with Bild, Sosa admits that a move to BayArena was appealing to him.
“Every player sets goals in his career, and I want to play in a team that is represented in Europe if possible. But the move to Leverkusen didn’t work out and that’s the end of the matter,” Sosa said.
“But I feel very comfortable at VfB, I’ve been here for almost five years now. I want to help achieve our goals. The fact that I have stayed in Stuttgart is not a problem for me.”
When asked about the possibility of joining an English Premier League club in the future, the Croatian international said:
“Like many players, I dream of playing in the Premier League one day. It’s the strongest league in the world. The other teams besides the big six top clubs are also strong.”
