Bordeaux defender Ludovic Sane is ecstatic at the prospect of securing a move to the Premier League, a competition of which he is “a big fan”.
Southampton, Everton and West Ham have all been linked with the Senegal international, who says that one particular team have been paying more attention to him than most and hopes that a deal is not far away.
"I am a big fan of the English league,” Sane told Sky Sports. “Everyone knows that.
“It is a dream to play in England and I want to go there and test myself to the limit against the likes of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov and Fernando Torres.
"I am being linked with some teams but I think there is a serious one who watched me several times this season.
"I hope they conclude a deal with Bordeaux and that I can play in England."
