Djibril Cisse has admitted he would jump at the chance to move back to the Premier League, with Liverpool his preferred destination.
The Panathinaikos star spoke to Sky Sports News about France’s shambolic World Cup campaign, which he was a part of, and was drawn onto the subject of English football.
He said: “At Liverpool I didn't have my chance, at Sunderland I had a good time but I fancy coming back to Liverpool - that would be nice.
“I like Arsenal, because my friends are there, Manchester is nice, but my club is Liverpool - from my club point of view, England is one of the best if not the best.”
With Fernando Torres’ future on Merseyside in doubt, new boss Roy Hodgson is currently in the market for a replacement, with FC Twente’s Costa Rican sensatiuon Bryan Ruiz a likely target.
Cisse bagged 23 goals in the Greek league last season and feels that, after a two year break from the English top flight, he is ready to make an even bigger impact.
He added: “I was missing enjoying football, and a lot of things - I needed to go away for a bit.
