Arsenal target Mulumbu drops West Brom exit hint

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu is considering his options at the Hawthorns.

Mulumbu has been linked with Arsenal this season.

He told France Football: "They (West Brom) are aware of my ambitions for the future. If I have the opportunity to join a more upscale club, I will. I owe West Brom a lot but now I would only go elsewhere to play in the Europa League or Champions League.

"I think it is the right time. I have progressed in my game, my game management, mentally, tactically, physically and I am ready to go to a top-four club.

"Clubs have enquired with West Brom [about a transfer this winter]. There have been approaches. But I do not dwell on it - I leave it for the club and my agent to handle.

"England is my first destination. I feel good here, there is no longer a language barrier. Beyond that, maybe there are opportunities with other clubs in the Champions League."
