Aston Villa and Everton are competing to sign £3million-rated Togo international Razak Boukari.
The Lens attacking midfielder is his club’s player of 2009. He helped them win the Ligue 2 title last May, and they have since made a sound start to life in the French top flight.
Rival bosses Martin O’Neill and David Moyes are both following his progress. And Boukari admitted: “I would love to play in England one day.”
Boukari, 22, is also wanted by Rennes. But despite naming Arsenal as his dream club, he would move to Goodison or Villa Park in preference to Lens’ French rivals.
The former France Under-21 international had a fortunate escape this month when missing out on Togo’s African Nations Cup squad. Three members of the party were killed in a terrorist attack.
How do papers come up with these names. Also why the heck would we buy someone who missed out on the Togo squad.
