"I'm aware of interest from clubs, however, to be honest I like Tottenham and want to play in the Premier League. Also my family is settled in London," he told skysports.com.
"I have so many friends here, however, I need to be playing week in, week out in order to keep my place in the Ivorian national team. There are many good players contesting my position.
"Harry's never told me he does not like me. I will have a chat with him and see."
