Fulham forward Moussa Dembele has admitted he would see a move to Tottenham as a 'step up'.
Spurs are reported to have an interest in Dembele, and it has been suggested that they remain keen on adding the 24-year-old to their ranks.
Arsenal and Liverpool have also been linked with the former AZ Alkmaar man, who is doing anything but rule out a move.
Asked about the reports of interest from Spurs, he told De Standaard: "Yes, I heard that.
"It would obviously be a step higher, and that has always been my goal.
"I did well last season when I was not injured, through many matches for Fulham. So why not step higher?"
Dembele has often played in a deep role for Fulham, but he says he is working on getting more shots on goal during matches.
"My thinking has changed somewhat. I shoot much more on target. The Fulham coach says that I'm evolving," he said.
"In the past, I could have gone four games and not taken a shot at goal. That no longer happens.
"Each match I shoot four times. I have also scored. Not enough, I know, but it will come."
