Arsenal defender target Siaka Tiene has revealed his desire to play in England.
The Ivory Coast international has been linked with an Emirates switch in recent months, and the player admits that a potential move to Arsenal excites him.
A versatile player who usually plays in the left back position, Tiene impressed for his country during the World Cup in-front of a watching Arsene Wenger.
Arsenal defender and compatriot Emmanuel Eboue is thought to have highlighted the player's ability and potential to Wenger, and Tiene is certainly keen on the move.
"Nothing is going to prevent me playing in the Premier League. I dream about playing in England,” said the 28-year-old.
"I have always seen Arsene Wenger's teams play and it excites me."
The Gunners are currently facing a defender crisis at the Emirates, and Wenger confirmed earlier in the month that a defender addition was the top priority for Arsenal in January.
With no luck in the market thus far, the Frenchman has stated that a loan move might be the best option for Arsenal, although it's unknown if PSG would be interested in a short-term deal.
A bid in the region of €3 million should be enough for Arsenal to bring the player to north London, but with only five days left in the window Wenger will have to move fast to secure his services.
