The future of Morgan Amalfitano looks increasingly likely to be played out in the Premier League, according to reports in the English press. The Marseille midfielder, who is reaching the end of his contract with the French club, is being targeted by Hull City and Queens Park Rangers.
Amalfitano enjoyed a very successful loan period at West Brom last season, in which he made 26 starts for the Baggies, and scored 4 goals. 2 of his strikes were headline makers, though, as the player produced the opening goal in a shock two-one victory over Manchester United, as well as a goal of the season contender against Cardiff.
Marseille are thought to be keen on resigning him, but Amalfitano has stalled over a contract extension in light of emerging interest from Premier League clubs. It is believed that the player would prefer to continue his career in England.
Hull could bring in the 29 year old as they continue to revamp their midfield ahead of next season. Steve Bruce has already secured the permanent signing of Jake Livermore from Tottenham Hotspur, and a move for Robert Snodgrass from Norwich has also been finalised.
Queens Park Rangers, on the other hand, are looking to bring in proven Premier League talent in order to give themselves the best chance of staying in the division next season. Amalfitano has been given a glimpse of the Premiership and he has impressed, but Harry Redknapp will hope that the player still possess a hunger and desire for the English top flight, as he is still relatively new to it.
