But he revealed to Foot Mercato: "Salisu is currently prioritising the Premier League. Forcing a player despite agreements between clubs is something we don't necessarily want to do. We have done everything to convince him, a priority, he would like to go to the Premier League.
"We want players who want to come. This is not a charge against Salisu, who during our discussions seemed very sincere. He prefers an English-speaking country. We do not intend to force people."
