Mainz striker Aristide Bance is attracting big Premiership interest.
Bild says Bance was reported to have told a British journalist: "The Premier League is for me one of the best leagues in the world. I have asked an English agent to look for clubs that have interest in me. "
However, Mainz manager Christian Heidel rejected the rumours. "This is all complete nonsense. Bance has never spoken to a British journalist. He is called repeatedly by agents."
