Toulouse's Moussa Sissoko: I dream of playing in the big leagues

The midfielder has commented on his ambitions, after recently been linked with moves to several big clubs including Manchester City, Liverpool and Lyon
Toulouse midfielder Moussa Sissoko is flattered by reports linking him with possible moves to major European clubs.

The France international has been rumoured to be sought by clubs such as Manchester City, Liverpool and Lyon.

The 21-year-old joined Toulouse in 2003, and has become a regular first-team player for the French outfit since 2007.

"I am an ambitious player and I dream to play in the big leagues," Sissoko told L'Equipe.

"I want to improve as a player and if I am presented with a good opportunity I will take it."

Despite being linked with these clubs, Sissoko's current contract with Toulouse runs until 2013, and he admits that while these links are positive, he is happy with his current club.

"They talk about Liverpool, Manchester City and Lyon and hearing my name associated with these clubs is wonderful," he said.

"But at the moment there is nothing concrete. I have a contract with Toulouse until June 2013. If I have to stay then it's no problem. Toulouse is a great club."

Toulouse will commence their pre-season friendlies on July 28, against Bayonne.
