Manchester United and Arsenal target Remy Cabella has opened the door to a potential Premier League move.
The highly-rated Frenchman has been heavily linked with a switch from Montpellier, with speculation back in November claiming the Gunners and Red Devils might get the opportunity to sign the player for £15million in the summer.
And, Cabella himself has admitted that a move away from Ligue 1 might be for the best, and whilst he’s fully focused on life at Montpellier currently, he’s ‘interested’ by a chance in England.
"For the moment, in my head, I'm 100 per cent Montpellier," he told French radio station RMC.
"If a proposal comes, it is up to the two clubs to discuss and I will think in terms of that. I am not aware of what is happening, I am dedicated to playing and that is the most important."
Questioned about an opportunity with Newcastle, the 23-year-old then opened up about Premier League football, admitting a move across the Channel would suit him.
"We realise that at some point we must leave. I think I'm capable of it," he added.
"England interests me, there are good clubs out there. If Montpellier reaches an agreement with an English club that suits me, I'll be happy."
Manchester United have found things tough following Sir Alex Ferguson’s departure in the summer, and the January transfer window could be a defining moment for manager David Moyes.
The Scot struggled to make an impact in the summer for the Red Devils, and has subsequently seen things go wrong on the pitch at Old Trafford in the first half of the season.
Cabella’s arrival would provide Manchester United with some additional flair in central midfield, but whether a deal can be struck ahead of their rivals remains to be seen.
Arsenal, meanwhile, have a track record of bringing young French players to north London under manager Arsene Wenger.
The Gunners find themselves in title contention this season, but a lack of depth could be their undoing at the Emirates Stadium as they battle for trophies on multiple-fronts.
Cabella would also give Arsenal another creative option behind the striker, although their might be other priorities for the Frenchman in the coming weeks.
