El Hamdaoui eyes Prem return

Morocco international keen to prove his worth in England

El Hamdaoui: Hot shot striker

Mounir El Hamdaoui has admitted he would welcome the opportunity to return to English football.

The Moroccan striker is currently on the books of Dutch outfit AZ Alkmaar and has made quite a name for himself during his time in Holland.

An enviable strike rate has drawn admiring glances from afar, with interest said to be mounting ahead of the summer.

El Hamdaoui moved to the Eredivisie after struggling to make the grade in England during spells at Tottenham and Derby.

He does, however, feel that he is now better equipped to handle the Premier League and would relish the chance to prove himself right.


"I love the English league," the 25-year-old told skysports.com.

"I want to prove myself there one day as all the best strikers are there - (Wayne) Rooney, (Didier) Drogba, (Fernando) Torres, (Dimitar) Berbatov. I have a dream of joining them.

"I have a contract here, though, until 2012 and my club would need to let me leave. You never know what might happen.

"I am scoring goals in this league regularly but my ambition is to score in the biggest leagues, so let's wait and see what happens in June."
