Olympique Lyon star Miralem Pjanic admits he has an ambition to play in the Premiership.

Pjanic, who has been linked with moves to Chelsea and Arsenal in the past, revealed that while a transfer never evolved past preliminary talks, he has ambitions to play in England.

"I have been concentrating on my work mainly, I know there were discussions about it but I don't know anything," he said on Arsenal's interest. "Of course I would want to play in England. If I leave Lyon it will be for a bigger club. English clubs and the English championship are very attractive.

"I have a very strong desire to come here, but at the moment I feel very good in Lyon and I am going to concentrate on my job and do my best to have a better season than last season."
