West Brom loanee Filip Krovinovic dreaming of playing Premier League football
Albion loanee Filip Krovinovic is not sure where he will be playing next season – but the midfielder says it is his dream to make it to the Premier League.
Last month the Express & Star revealed the Croatian is a long-term transfer target for the Baggies having impressed since joining on loan from Benfica.
But the initial deal that took Krovinovic to The Hawthorns didn’t include an option to buy the player. Now, though, it is understood Benfica are willing to listen to offers.
Krovinovic, however, is unsure what his future holds.
“I don’t know anything about it, I just know what the media is writing about, here in Birmingham or Croatia,” he said.
“I don’t know what will happen but it’s clear that every player in the world has a dream of playing in the Premier League.”
Krovinovic, who suffered a serious knee injury back in January 2018, has won 11 caps for Croatia’s under-21s.
And the 24-year-old is now eager to force his way into the senior side.
“Right now, I see it as the most important thing to be able to play for Croatia,” he continued.
“My priority at this stage is to stay healthy, something that didn’t happen at Benfica, where I had a knee operation.
“The national team is an objective that I would also like to fulfil. I hope this can happen now. At first I was unlucky, at a time when I was about to go.
“If I continue as I have been, I think it will happen.”
