Matuidi: Reported to be attracting interest from Arsenal
Blaise Matuidi is hoping to secure a move to England, with Arsenal reported to be planning a bid.
The midfielder is currently on the books of French outfit St Etienne, but has ambitions of competing at a higher level.
He considers the Premier League to be the best league in the world and admits he would relish the opportunity to test himself on that stage.
Reports suggest Arsenal are reluctant to meet St Etienne's valuation, but a compromise could be reached.
Matuidi hopes that will prove to be the case, with the opportunity to turn out for the Gunners too good to turn down.
"I am flattered by the interest from clubs abroad and I have always loved the Premier League," he said in the Daily Star Sunday.
"It is the best league in the world, so exciting. I really want to be part of that."
