Bayer Leverkusen defender Tah is eager to play in the Premier League and believes he can meet the requirements to play for a club in England.

Jonathan Tah

, Bayer Leverkusen’s cetnre-back, is determined to play at the highest level and believes the

Premier League

is what he is looking for as he is confident about his qualifications.

During the summer transfer window, the 24-year-old has been offered a contract by

Leicester City

. The foxes aren’t the only ones who are impressed by Tah and interested in linking with him.


The Premier League appeals to me, it has always been like that. I always had the feeling that my style of play would suit England well,

" he said in an interview.


The physicality of the league and the need to think quickly are qualities that suit my game. Opinions differ as to which league is the best in the world - for me it's the Premier League."

Tah has appeared in only five matches in Bundesliga this season. However, he played regularly in the

Europa League

group stage. The former Hamburg defender has started made his debut in


when he was 17 and was praised as one of the most significant players with a bright future. His contact with Leverkusen expires in two and a half years.


It may sound strange because I haven't played that often lately, but I'm convinced that I can reach the top level in football," said Tah, who was recently the subject of a documentary in which DAZN followed him for a year.

"I've made a step forward, both on a sporting level and personally, but I don't know where I'll end up in the end.

"I have to be convinced that a transfer will help me. It depends on whether the club has their own philosophy or makes their philosophy dependent on the coach.

"Then the question arises as to which system the coach uses and what he expects from his players, especially in my position.

"Of course, how the team is set up is also very important. How big is the competition in my position, which guys would I play with? So there are some factors to consider."
