Agent Ferrari says Man Utd, Everton target Witsel capable of Premier League success

Italian agent Fabrizio Ferrari says Standard Liege midfielder Axel Witsel is good enough to make a big splash in the Premier League.

Italian agent Fabrizio Ferrari says Standard Liege midfielder Axel Witsel is good enough to make a big splash in the Premier League.

Ferrari takes care of Witsel's teammate Elaquim Mangala at Standard and is aware of the midfielder's comments this week about wanting a move.

Witsel has been tracked by Manchester United and Everton long-term, though Ferrari believes his game would suit Spain or Italy better.

He told tribalfootball.com: "In my opinion Witsel is a very good quality player - even if I see him more in Italy or Spain than the UK.

"In the Belgium Championship you can find some very good and talented players. But they will always have to prove themselves all over again when they move to another top championship."
