CSKA Moscow's goalscoring hero Seydou Doumbia has revealed his ambition to play in the Premier League in the future.
The Ivorian striker hit the headlines this week after netting twice in Wednesday night's 2-2 UEFA Champions League draw against French champions Lille.
Doumbia claims 'a big London club' were chasing his signature last year and says he dreams of playing in the English top-flight.
"It is a dream for me to play in that league one day," he told skysports.com. "Hopefully one day but at the moment I am here.
"Before I came here, a big London club were interested in me. However, with work permit problems it was complicated.
"But I want to play in that league in my career. It would be a dream come true."
Doumbia could not have wished for a better Champions League debut on Wednesday as his double rescued Moscow from two goals down to earn them a share of a spoils.
The 23-year-old hopes he can continue to do well on the continental stage.
He added: "I was very happy to score two goals. It was a dream come true scoring two goals in the Champions League.
"I am looking forward to making a name for myself on the biggest stage of European football."
