Kouyate eager For West Ham to experience Champions League

Cheikhou Kouyate is optimistic of playing Champions League football with West Ham United.

There are exciting times at West Ham after making a move into the London Olympic Stadium this summer while displaying a lot of ambition in the transfer market by bringing in a host of high-profile players to their new home.

As evidenced by their summer business, the Hammers are clearly eyeing up a Champions League finish in the foreseeable future and now midfielder Kouyate has expressed his desire to play in Europe's elite club competition for the Hammers.

"Playing football is my dream and I've come to West Ham to help the team and to help them qualify for the Champions League," he told Goal.

"In my opinion I can play in the Champions League because I've done it before with Anderlecht and it was a very nice experience.

"I want to have this experience with West Ham."
