Japanese midfielder and forward Takefusa Kubo has attracted the attention of several clubs, thanks to his performances for Real Sociedad. The former Real Madrid man is now a target for Premier League giants, who are planning to make a move for him.
Recently, Kubo stunned everyone with a brilliant piece of skill, dribbling past an opponent and scoring a wonder goal (although it was disallowed) against Real Madrid, which caught the eye of all observers of European football. Since last season, Kubo has been in fine form for Real Sociedad.
During his time at Real Madrid, Kubo had few opportunities and was loaned out to several teams before being transferred permanently to Real Sociedad. Now, there are rumors that Kubo could be moving from La Liga to the Premier League in the next transfer window.
Premier League clubs eye Kubo
According to journalist Ekrem Konur, several Premier League teams are considering the possibility of signing Takefusa Kubo, the Real Sociedad player. Although the interested clubs have not been revealed, they are described as big names in English football.
There are reports suggesting that an offer of €30 million could be made soon for the Japanese player. However, Real Sociedad is likely to take a firm stance to keep their key player. The Spanish club is expected to receive a significant amount in a potential transfer of Kubo.
Kubo, who is 22 years old, is valued at around €25 million according to the Transfermarkt website. This season, he has already played six games, scoring three goals and providing one assist. In addition, Kubo is competing in the Champions League with Real Sociedad.
In the last transfer window, the Japanese attacker turned down a proposal from Al Hilal. Although he could have received €16 million per year in Arab football, his desire to play in the Champions League was more important. He could now be heading for a new challenge in the Premier League.
