Arsenal midfielder target Mathieu Valbuena admits the prospect of playing football in England is an interesting one.

The French international has only recently emerged on the radar of Barclays Premier League clubs, with Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson also thought to be keen on bringing the player across from Ligue 1.

Whilst admitting to being happy with his life in France, the player known as the 'little bike' has revealed that playing away from his homeland could potentially be an option.

"I feel good in Marseille. The day I leave will be a blow to my heart. I have a contract until 2015 and I am very happy here, but I am also ambitious and hungry for titles," said the 26-year-old.

"I am very attracted to Spanish football, which to me is the best in the world. But the leagues in England and Germany are very interesting."


Arsenal have been linked to a handful of attacking midfielders this summer, with manager Arsene Wenger vowing to spend in the transfer market should the 'right' players become available for the north London outfit.

With skipper Cesc Fabregas and French international Samir Nasri both potentially making an Emirates exit this summer, reinforcements will be needed at Arsenal if the Gunners are to be competitive next season.

Whilst the French manager will try valiantly to keep his stars at the club, the future heart of the side could lie elsewhere, with Valbuena a potential option for Arsenal to play alongside youngsters Jack Wilshere and Aaron Ramsey.
