In-demand Hoffenheim striker Chinedu Ogbuke has spoken of his ambition to play in the Premier League one day.

The 22-year-old hot-shot is reportedly being tracked by Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal.

He is much-coveted after scoring 18 times in 39 games for Hoffenheim since his switch from FC Lyn-Oslo in August 2007, with six of those goals coming this season.

And the Nigerian - who has previously had trials with Chelsea and Portsmouth - has told skysports.com that he would love to play in the English top-flight, although he is happy at his current club for now.

He said: "To play in the Premier League is one of my ambitions - I had a trial at Chelsea before going to Lyn-Oslo.

Never know

"I love the Premier League, but at the moment I am fine at my club in Germany, but you never know, one day I might go.

"My friend (John Obi) Mikel told me about the Premier League, it is the best league at the moment, stadiums are always packed and strikers, offensive players, enjoy themselves."

While the striker admitted Chelsea were one of the biggest clubs "however there are so many big clubs, even in Germany," he said.

"My ambition is to play in the World Cup - I need to impress to be part of this famous tournament, it is a dream of any African player."
