Moussa Konate: Caught the eye at the 2012 Olympics
Moussa Konate, who shone for Senegal at the 2012 Olympics, admits he has an agent working on securing him a move to England.
The 19-year-old forward netted five times at the London Games, bringing him to the attention of Premier League scouts.
Konate is currently on the books of Israeli outfit Maccabi Tel Aviv, who snapped him up in the summer of 2011.
He is, however, prepared to admit that the lure of the English top-flight would be too great to turn down if an enticing offer was put to him.
"My agent is Moustapha Kamara, he is in Marseille, and he has given a mandate to an agent in England to represent me," said Konate.
"Any club that is interested can contact Mr Joseph Donkor in England.
"I want to play in England. I loved the Olympics and the atmosphere in the stadiums.
"It is a great league. No disrespect to the Israel league, but the Premier League is top quality."
Konate has been linked with Norwich, West Brom, Swansea, Fulham and Stoke.
