The coveted Toulouse midfielder has confirmed his interest in moving to a top side in England after discussions broke down with Italian side Roma during the summer

Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko has revealed his desire to play in the Premier League after talks over a move to Italian club  Roma broke down over the summer.

The 23-year-old has been on the radar of top-flight English clubs for several years, after he reportedly turned down a move across the Channel to sign professional terms with his boyhood club Toulouse.

Talking to Bein Sport, he said: “As a player I want to grow, but I have not forgotten that I have a contract. I have to give myself fully to this club [Toulouse]. I have one year left on my contract, I will try to give the maximum and next year we'll see.

“I matured, I grew up and learned a lot with Toulouse. It's been six years that I am with Téfécé."

The French international has been capped for his national side on three occassions, having been part of the national setup since under-16 level.

Sissoko has made a staggering 168 appearances for the Ligue 1 side since his debut in 2007 and has also scored on 19 occassions, but revealed his ambition was to play for a top club in England.

“The English league attracts me first," revealed Sissoko.

"My profile might interest some clubs. But if I leave Téfécé it will be for a higher club like Man United, Arsenal, City or even Newcastle and Tottenham. But I know I still have to work for it.

“There have been discussions with Roma this summer, but no concrete offer.”
