Lyon defender John Mensah believes he is destined to play in the Premier League in the future.
The Ghana centre-back only joined Ligue 1 champions Lyon in the summer, but he has already admitted a desire to play in England.
Wigan, Portsmouth, Blackburn, Bolton and West Ham were all linked with the 25-year-old before he left former club Rennes in July.
And Mensah, who has made 32 appearances for Ghana, has now announced that the Premier League is a challenge which appeals to him.
"To play in the Premier League and test yourself against the best strikers in the world is a dream for all good defenders," Mensah told skysports.com.
"I am destined to go there."
Mensah is tied to a five-year contract with Lyon, who paid €8.4million (£6.7m) for his services.
