Olympique Lyon defender Mattia de Sciglio has admitted ambitions of playing in the Premier League.

And the former Juventus and AC Milan stopper says he'd love to play one day for Chelsea.

De Sciglio said, "I am fascinated by the Premier League and Chelsea, but right now I am only focused on the last part of the season.

"We want to pass Monaco and qualify for the Champions League qualifiers."

He also remarked: "I would like to stay here in Lyon. I feel good on and off the field. Alternatively, I would like to try a new experience abroad, possibly in England."
