Christian Atsu: Keen to move to Premier League this summer

Premier League clubs have been put on alert after Porto winger Christian Atsu reiterated his desire to move to England this summer.

Atsu, who is entering the final year of his contract at Estadio do Dragao, is likely to leave Porto after turning down the club's offer of a new deal.

The 21-year-old has snubbed fresh terms because Porto are trying to increase his release clause to €30m (£24million) and he found himself out of favour in the second half of this season as a result of his contract wrangle.

The likes of Liverpool, Tottenham, Everton and Arsenal have all been linked with a move for Atsu and the Ghana international admits it would be a dream to play in England.

Atsu, who is away on international duty with Ghana for their upcoming World Cup qualifiers, hopes there will be a resolution over his future soon.

"I spoke to the club [Porto] before I came away on international duty and informed them that I won't be signing a new deal," Atsu told Sky Sports.

"The club have made their feelings clear to me after I refused to sign a new deal and I hope we can reach a resolution soon.

"It has always been my dream to play in England and it is flattering to be linked with some big Premier League clubs.

"At the moment I am focused on Ghana's World Cup games, but I see my future in England and I hope I will have more news after these games."
