Bulgaria's Levski Sofia star striker Garra Dembele is much sought after by many UK Premier League teams according to his agent.
The agent of the 24-year-old French-Malian forward did not name any specific teams, but in the past has mentioned names such as Birmingham and Stoke. Sky Sports commented that Blackburn might also be interested in the top scorer of the Bulgarian national football championship.
"I am not surprised that there is such great interest in Garra. I think this is completely normal for a striker, who has already scored 27 goals in the Bulgarian championship and the European tournaments," said Dembele's agent.
While Dembele is reportedly also wooed in Italy, Russia and Turkey, his agent commented that England might be the place most favorable for the development of the full potential of the footballer.
Recently Levski's president Todor Batkov had announced that Dembele will be transfered for a record EUR 3.5 M.
Early December the Malian was arrested in Sofia for drunk driving and had to make an extended apology to the public and his team.
