Standard Liege defender Eliaquim Mangala is ready to move to a bigger competition - including the Premier League.

Mangala, rated one the best young players in Belgium, has been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham this season and his agent, Fabrizio Ferrari, says he is ready to move to England.

"I hope to have some offers from English clubs (in the summer)," Ferrari told tribalfootball.com.

"I think he is ready to move on and play in another championship - even if Standard is regarded as one of the top clubs in Europe."

France U21 international Mangala has been likened to Tottenham defender William Gallas and is admired by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger. He famously scored against Arsenal in the Champions League last season.
