Monaco attacker Keita Balde admits Premier League ambitions

Monaco attacker Keita Balde admits he has ambitions of playing in England.

Keita moved to Monaco last summer from Lazio and scored eight goals in 26 games before the French season was cancelled.

Tottenham and Liverpool have been linked with the attacker.

“I was born in Spain, I am a pupil of Barcelona, but I have never played in a league," Balde told Sky Sports.

"I became a football player in Serie A, playing for Lazio, now I decided to try myself in Monaco, in the French championship. I like to take on new challenges. Of course, any football player with ambitions would like to play in the Premier League, as in the La Liga.

"I would like to perform in England. In any case, now my task is to enjoy the next season at Monaco and become even stronger."
