The Sparta Prague midfielder has been linked with a move to the Premier League for some time, and has admitted that he would relish the opportunity to test himself in England.

He could be about to get his wish, with an agreement reported to be close.

The Slovakian's representative admits discussions are heading towards a conclusion and he expects a deal to be pushed through before the transfer window slams shut.


"Most of the people we have spoken to have been from English Premier League clubs," Emil Kovarovic told SITA.

"In Juraj's case everything is still open. We still have a lot of time until the window closes at the end of August.

"I can reveal, though, that the selling and buying clubs have gradually started to head towards an agreement."

Kucka is also believed to have attracted interest from German giants Bayer Leverkusen, while an unnamed Italian side are reported to have lodged a late bid for his services.

The 23-year-old currently has 10 senior caps with Slovakia to his name and was part of their squad for the 2010 World Cup.
