Zilina defender Akakpo eyes Premier League move

MSK Zilina defender Serge Akakpo admits he would love to realise his dream and play in the Premier League.

The Togo captain, who is preparing to take on Ivory Coast in his nations opening fixture at the 2013 African Cup of Nations on Tuesday, says he would one day love to make the move to England's top flight.

"I have lots of friends there like Younes Kaboul and Abou Diaby, who I played with for Auxerre, and Hatem Ben Arfa and Samir Nasri, who were also my team-mates," Akakpo told the Sunday Times.

"England today has the best championship in the world. Playing there is my dream."
