Wague keen on England move

Mali defender Molla Wague has set his sights on a move to England after attracting the interest of a number of clubs.

Wague, who helped Caen win promotion to Ligue 1 last season, is out of contract and his availability on a free transfer has alerted a number of clubs across Europe.

West Brom are thought to be leading the chase for Wague, with Crystal Palace, Leicester City and Norwich also in the race for his signature.

A number of French and Italian clubs are also thought to be chasing Wague and the 23-year-old is ready to sit down and weigh up his options after playing for Mali against Croatia this weekend.

The former France Under-19 international is aware of the interest from English clubs and he admits he would be keen on a move to England.

"I am aware of the offers from England and of course it is attractive for me to play there, but I also received proposals from Europe," Wague told Sky Sports.

"At the moment however, I have left my agents to do their work and I have been focusing on my duty with the national team.

"After I finish, we will carefully consider my options before deciding the next step in my career."
