The youngster is being tracked by Manchester United this season, with talk in Italy of a January offer being prepared.
He recalled: "In the Viareggio tournament there were Chelsea scouts for me. The Premier League was a dream then like today and I hope it is a reality tomorrow, I do not know when: many say to me 'It's the perfect championship for you', and I agree.
"Physicality, battles, open football: yes, I can see myself there. Especially at the right time: I was attracted by an experience abroad at 19, when I went to Benfica and then I found myself having to start all over again. I don't want to have to go through that again."
