Manchester United and Liverpool target Patson Daka has insisted he can emulate fellow African stars Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Mo Salah and Sadio Mane by becoming a hit in the Premier League as speculation around his future continues to intensify.
The Red Bull Salzburg striker caught the attention of Premier League clubs last season and has been in sensational form this term, scoring 15 times 17 games.
Tottenham had been linked with a £28million move for the Zambia international in the summer but had their attempts to sign him rebuffed by Salzburg, and now United and Liverpool have too expressed an interest.

The 22-year-old has hinted he could be keen on a move to England in the near future by saying it is his ‘dream’ to follow in the footsteps of Premier League stars Aubameyang, Salah and Mane.
He said: ‘To see our big brothers like Aubameyang, Salah and Mane, it’s something that gives me the dream that I can also make it.
‘I can be like them. They are my inspiration, knowing that they also come from Africa.
‘I think when people are making those kind of comparisons, it’s great, looking at the status of Sadio Mane, the kind of football he plays and the kind of person that he is.’

Daka has scored 15 times in 17 games this term and has earned comparisons with Samuel Eto’o
Daka has already been dubbed as ‘the next Samuel Eto’o’ by his national team coach Milutin Sredejovic and looks destined for a big-money move soon.
Salzburg has become a breading ground for exciting young talent with Erling Haaland, Dominik Szoboszlai and Mane himself among those to have joined some of Europe’s elite in recent years.
Daka has praised Salzburg’s commitment to developing young players, but is keeping coy about his own next move.
Speaking about a potential exit, he added: ‘I have to continue what I’m doing. We will see what the future will bring’
