Zenit star Witsel has Premier League ambitions

Axel Witsel sees the Premier League as his next port of call.

The Belgian star is currently with Zenit St Petersburg, who paid Benfica over £30million for him just over 12 months ago.

"I've an objective in my head and I want to join a big club," the 24 year old told Het Laatste Nieuws.

"But I don't say it has to happen now, I don't even know when, but it has to be a top club."

And he admits that England is the place he wants to be.

"Then I think about the Premier League, the league everyone's looking at. You have eight top clubs there."
