Marco Fabian acknowledges Premier League interest

The Chivas de Guadalajara star is currently shining at the Toulon tournament, where he's bagged six goals in the group stage of the U23 competition.
After a blistering group stage at the Toulon Tournament, Mexico's Marco Fabian has attracted interest from European scouts keen on snapping him up for one of the world's top leagues.

With six goals in three games thus far, the Chivas forward has been the talk of the tournament, and has intrigued one Premier League scout who has already established contact towards a potential transfer.

"I've had an English scout come talk to me, these are things that happen and I must respectfully say that of course I'm thankful that he's noticed me, but also, I know there are others who have not approached me, this tournament is full of scouts and more than one can be eyeing you at any time," said Fabian to Medio Tiempo.

Mexican media have already played up a strong interest from two La Liga clubs as well as the Premier League, and Fabian is determined to continue his strong play to give observers something to talk about.

"It's not distracting me, my mind is set on doing things right, showing what I'm capable of and helping the team win the [Toulon] championship."

Chivas have been reluctant to sell their most recent crop of stars, after several big name clubs have raided their first-team squad to make off with the likes of Javier Hernandez, Ulises Davila and Carlos Vela in recent years.

Fabian was linked to a Brazil move when Corinthians supposedly approached the team, but Chivas vehemently opposed the transfer. Earlier this year, striker Erick Torres was also groomed for a Premier League move, but the team refused to sell.
