The Ghana international sheds light on the speculations surrounding his future at Chicago Fire

Want-away Chicago Fire attacker David Accam believes multiple interests in his services underline his impressive performance in Major League Soccer.

The Ghanaian, whose current Fire deal expires at the end of the season, has become a top transfer target for a host of European teams after winning back-to-back Best Player and Top Scorer awards at the club.

Reports say the 26-year-old has fallen out with coach Veljko Paunovic over his unwillingness to extend his stay, and was briefly assigned to the bench until Saturday's win over New England Revolution.

"I’ll be honest there’s a lot of offers from teams,” Accam said, as reported by CSNChicago.

“For me, it shows that I’m doing really well. 

"I’m playing well. I’m playing on a good team and that’s just a testament of what we’re doing here. 

"My performance is showing and we’re winning games, so for me, my head is still here and the rumors will always be there.”

The Right to Dream graduate also spoke about Fire's desire to extend his stay at Toyota Park.

"It shows their commitment to me, that they really want me to be here,” he said. 

“For me, I’m happy they’re taking my option for next year.

"[I] just [want to] concentrate and help the team win MLS Cup.”

Accam is Fire's current top scorer of the season with 12 goals in 20 league games.
