Genoa star Albert Gudmundsson is linked with Inter, Juventus, Milan, Napoli, Tottenham Hotspur and more, but reveals while he ‘used to dream of the Premier League, I’ve changed my mind now.’

The Iceland international had a remarkable debut Serie A campaign following Genoa’s promotion from Serie B, contributing 14 goals and three assists in 34 games.

His club already rejected a massive offer from Fiorentina in January and realises it might have to let him leave over the summer.

“If I was to leave Genoa, it would only be for an incredible opportunity,” the 26-year-old said to La Gazzetta dello Sport magazine Sportweek.

That does not necessarily mean Tottenham, as while that might’ve been the most intriguing idea a year ago, things have changed for Gudmundsson.

“As a child, I used to dream of the Premier League, but I’ve changed my mind now. There is a great life here. So soon Genoa and I will sit down at a table and find the best solution for me and for them.”

Gudmundsson wants the good life

While the English clubs would no doubt be able to offer more money and a more lucrative salary, this is not the primary consideration for the player, who hails from a football family.

“My preferred position is as a Number 10, as it is important for me to have the freedom to roam and express my creativity.”

Lifestyle is also important to the forward, who admits it has been a revelation to live 10 minutes from the sea, where he can even have a dip in winter.
