Gladbach's Yann Sommer open to Premier League amid Man City talk

Yann Sommer has made 32 Bundesliga appearances this season.

Switzerland international Yann Sommer will listen to offers from the Premier League, the Borussia Monchengladbach goalkeeper has told Bild amid rumours of interest from Manchester City.

Sommer, 27, is under contract at Gladbach until 2019, but could be tempted by a move to England following Euro 2016.

German newspaper Bild, citing British media reports, confronted Sommer with the rumours that English clubs have been monitoring him and could make a move this summer.

"I will listen to offers from England," Sommer said.

When asked specifically about rumoured interest from City, he replied: "You listen to everything. If something is interesting for a player it's also interesting for the club. Should a club come and make Gladbach a great offer they won't say now. That's football."

For now, the shot-stopper wants to finish the season at Gladbach on a good note and then switch focus to the upcoming European Championship in France, where Switzerland have been drawn in Group A alongside the hosts as well as Romania and Albania.

He said: "I am under contract here for another three years, and feel happy. It's incredible that we've reached the fourth spot after such a season. It was an extreme up and down. We want to end the season on a high at Darmstadt, and I will focus on the European Champions after that."

Despite five consecutive defeats at the start of the season, Gladbach have all but secured the Champions League playoff place as they go into the final match day with a three-point lead and a vastly superior goal difference over Mainz, Hertha Berlin and Schalke.

Sommer is not the only Switzerland international linked with a switch from Gladbach to Premier League. Holding midfielder Granit Xhaka, 23, is a reported Arsenal target and has said he wants clarity over his future before the start of Euro 2016 next month.
