21-year old Club Brugge defender Bjorn Engels has said that he is still not ready for a move to English giants Arsenal or German side Borussia Dortmund as he is keen to hone his skills at a “mid-table team”.

The defender is highly regarded by some European giants and has been linked with two of Europe’s biggest clubs.

With the Gunners currently experiencing a defensive crisis as Per Mertesacker and Gabriel both recently being ruled out of action it looked as if they will try to bring the defender to the Emirates.

But when asked about a potential move to Arsenal or Dortmund, Engels – who only signed a new deal with Club Brugge in July – told Het Laatste Nieuws: “That [a move to Dortmund or Arsenal] is a bridge too far for me at the moment.
“A mid-table team [in a big league] would be the ideal next step for me and there have been some serious offers from such teams.

“I am staying calm, though. I only want to be informed about it when Club also agree to a transfer.

“I am 100 per cent focused on Club now and that will not change so long as I am here. Playing in the Champions League is a nice prospect as well.

“We will have to wait and see what happens.”

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan.
    You will never walk alone.
