Published Add your comment

Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Kevin Kampl has revealed that he dreams of playing for Arsenal, a club that he likes "very much" because of their style of football, reports Sky Sports.

The Slovenia international has built a reputation as one of the most exciting young prospects in Austria at the moment, after an impressive season during which time he has scored 10 goals in 27 appearances.

Kampl was born in Germany, and started his career with Bayer Leverkusen, before being snapped up by Roger Schmidt and brought to the Red Bull Arena in 2012, for a reported €3.5million.

The 23-year-old admits that he would like to return to the Bundesliga one day, but also has aspirations to test himself in the Premier League, sounding out Arsenal as a potential destination, with the prospect of playing under Gunners boss Arsene Wenger at the Emirates Stadium.

"England has its own charm and London is a unique place," Kampl told Slovenian daily sports newspaper Ekipa. "There's also Arsenal, the club that I like very much because of their style of football.

"Sometimes when I watch their games, I close my eyes and dream of how it would be if I was there playing for them.

"This certainly is a dream and I hope that one day it will come true for me which is why I'm always giving my all during training sessions."

Arsenal are currently well stocked in the attacking midfield department, but nonetheless, news of Kampl's reported interest in moving to north London will be welcomed by the club and its fans.
