Southampton winger Alex Chamberlain has opened the door to a potential move this summer after admitting that he wants to join a 'top club'.

The 17-year-old has been hailed as one of England's most exciting young players and has been linked with a move to Arsenal.

"I've heard Arsenal are in for me and to join a top-four club is what I hope for," Chamberlain told The Sun.

"When the bus comes along, you have to jump on it and make the most of your opportunities. It's not every day you get a chance like that. I believe in my own ability and that I have what it takes to play in the Premier League.

"I've been at Southampton since I was seven and enjoyed every minute of it. They've brought me up in a really good way. The fans and the manager have been great and the club have made me what I am today.

"But I feel it's time for the next step. The way I see it, the Premier League is where I aspire to play. You aren't at the top of the game until you get there.

"I could spend a year in the Championship and, though this might sound negative, I could get injured and that opportunity might be lost. The next year another young star could come through and the opening might not come around again."
