Gent of Belgium player, Moses Simon is wary of joining English Premiership side, Liverpool despite their interest in signing him, SportingLife.ng can reveal.
The player sounded realistic when he weighed the options of playing for a high profile club such as Liverpool who parade one of the best attacking line-ups in Europe. He admitted it would be difficult.
“It would be a good club for me because I could play. In a top club, I would not be sure. I have to play, it’s the most important thing. I also know that in the second division there are good teams. When I play with Nigeria, I do not see any difference with the Premier League players,”” he said.
Belgian outlet, Het Laatste Nieuws on Wednesday revealed that Liverpool have reportedly entered the race to sign the £13million rated winger in the summer despite interests from Newcastle and Brighton.
A tweet from Belgian journalist, Kristof Terreur on his twitter account stated that Newcastle were in Belgium last weekend to watch Simon play against Anderlecht.
