Patson Daka drops Liverpool transfer hint


The RB Salzburg striker is linked with a move to the Premier League, with Liverpool said to be interested

RB Salzburg striker Patson Daka wants to follow the footsteps of his African brothers Saido Mane and Mohamed Salah who have made names in the Premier League.

Zambia international Daka was named Africa's young player of the year in 2017 and is said to be one the hottest prospect in European football, with 15 goals and 5 assists already bagged in 17 appearances for Salzburg so far this season.

The 22-year-old revealed he has been inspired by the success of other African footballers in the Premier League, he told BBC "To see our big brothers like Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang,
Mohamed Salah , Sadio Mane , it’s something that gives me the dream that I can also make it.

"I can be like them. They are my inspiration, knowing that they also come from Africa.

"I think when people are making those kind of comparisons, it’s great, looking at the status of Sadio Mane, the kind of football he plays and the kind of person that he is."

He added: "My biggest dream is to give hope to a lot of underprivileged people.

"When I look back I want to be proud to hear people say, 'because of you, I never gave up my dream.

"You gave me the opportunity to believe in myself,' because I know how difficult it is."
