Hull City target Nick Proschwitz has same 'premier dream' as Tigers
NICK Proschwitz will make a decision on his future on Monday – with the chance of realising his Premier League dream swaying him towards joining Hull City.
The 25-year-old German striker has interest from top-flight clubs in his home country, Italy and Austria, according to his agent, Lars-Wilhelm Baumgarten.
But having spent a day with the Tigers at their training camp in Portugal, Proschwitz was impressed by manager Steve Bruce's vision for City.
"Nick's dream is to play in the Premier League and Steve Bruce was very clear that his vision is to take Hull back there," Baumgarten told the Mail.

"Steve was very welcoming in Portugal, as were the players, and we were very impressed with Hull. They have good football philosophies, good ideas and staff.
"The vision is clearly to get the club into the Premier League, but Nick still has a big decision to make."
Having scored 17 goals in 33 games for SC Paderborn last season, a price-tag of between £1.5m and £2m will be needed to secure the services of the second division hitman.
His impressive form has brought plenty of admirers in his own country, with a bid from Bundesliga side Furth potentially the biggest threat to the Tigers.
"Nick is only 25 years old and he has to decide what is the best for his career," Baumgarten added.
"He is settled in Germany, and he could move to the top division here, where he knows the area, he knows the teams and he knows the players.
"He has to balance that against playing second division football in another country and adapting to a different style of living.
"The chance of getting to the Premier League with Hull is obviously a big incentive to move there, but that is much easier said than done."
