Bordeaux defender Lamine Sane says that it is his 'dream' to play in the Premier League and test himself against some of the best players in the world.
Sane has been linked with a move to West Ham United, Everton and Southampton and he hopes a move to England is not that far away.
"I am a big fan of the English league, everyone knows that," Sane told Sky Sports.
"It is a dream to play in England and I want to go there and test myself to the limit against the likes of Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Dimitar Berbatov and Fernando Torres."
The Senegal international is reported to have been watched most recently by West Ham with current club Bordeaux thought to be holding out for a big fee.
Sane added: "I am being linked with some teams but I think there is a serious one who watched me several times this season.
"I hope they conclude a deal with Bordeaux and that I can play in England."
