Highly-rated Bordeaux defender Lamine Sane has admitted he would love the chance to play in England.
The 26-year-old Senegalese international has been strongly linked with a move to the Premier League, with West Ham United credited with an interest most recently.
Sane, who has two years left on his current deal with Bordeaux, has now hidden his admiration of the English game.
"I love the game and the atmosphere in the Premier League," he told L'Equipe.
"And I believe on a physical level I could match the expectation level."
Sane has played over 80 games for Bordeaux since joining from Agde in 2009.
