Ghana midfielder Emmanuel Agyemang-Badu wants to be remembered as one of the greatest African players to have ever graced the pitch when he calls time on his career.
The 23-year-old Udinese star, has been phenomenal for the Italian outfit this season, where he has been instrumental in their campaign so far.
The performance of the Ghanaian international has attracted lots of offers from stellar Europeans clubs including English trio Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur.
However the former Ghana Under-20 star has set an audacious targets of being counted among African greats when he retires from the game.
“I want to be remembered as a player who won the African (player of the year), the European (footballer of the year), or a Champions League medal,” Agyemang-Badu said
“I know it is a long road but I’m ready to make the dream come to reality.”
Among his suitors, Liverpool is believed to the most serious contender with manager Brendan reported to be a key admirer of the talented midfielder.
Rodgers is believed to have pinpointed the midfielder as one of his main targets for the summer transfer window, and it is thought that a £7 million bid may be enough to tempt Udinese into selling the ambitious Ghanaian.
Badu has earned 41 internationals caps for Ghana, despite only being 23 years of age, and has reportedly sparked interest across the continent after speaking of his desire to win trophies, both as part of a team and individually.
