Liverpool, Man Utd target Botman: Interest a nice compliment

Lille defender Sven Botman is flattered by interest from England.

The young Dutchman is being tracked by Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester United ahead of the summer market.

He told the Athletic: "It is a nice compliment when you hear that this type of club shows interest. I would be lying if I said it did not interest me.

"It is the first time such big clubs are connected with me, but in January I had only been with Lille for six months and then it was too early. It's fun to hear, but I only focus on Lille.

"After the season, I will enjoy a holiday and then we will see what happens. To be honest, the Premier League is one of the leagues I dream of, but also Serie A, La Liga and the Bundesliga."
