Ivory Coast international Bakary Kone has spoken of his desire to seal a switch to the Premier League.
"The Premier League is the most exciting league," Kone told skysports.com.
"Every player in the world dreams of playing in that league, with the big crowds and the coverage it gets around the globe.
"When I was growing up it was all about the French league but today people talk of (Didier) Drogba, (Abdoulaye) Meite, (Didier) Zokora, (Salomon) Kalou. I really want to be part of that.
"I am very fast and technically very good. All the players in the Premier League have those qualities so I can make a name for myself."
The 26-year-old admits he would be attracted by an offer from Arsenal, but would also be happy to play for any of the Premier League's other top sides.
