Highly rated Lille striker Moussa Sow has paved the way for a summer switch to Arsenal, after the Senegalese international admitted it would be a dream to move to the Barclays Premier League.

The 25-year-old front man finished the 2010-11 campaign as the Ligue 1 top goalscorer in France, with 25 goals in 36 games for Rudi Garcia's title holders.

"I feel good at Lille," Sow told French TV station Canal+. "[But] we'll see what the management of the club think because, keep in mind that the transfer market ends on 31 August."

Having been linked with a host of clubs across Europe this summer, it is Arsenal who now find themselves in the driving seat for his signature, as pressure continues to mount on Gunners boss Arsene Wenger to add to his squad at the Emirates Stadium.


The north Londoners have endured a difficult start to the new campaign, picking up just a solitary point from their opening two fixtures - but that has done little to perturb Sow from where he sees his future.

"I'd love to play for Arsenal, because my game suits the Premier League," he continued. "However, Real Madrid is also a real top team."

Wenger's hopes of luring him to England, could hang on another of his summer signings, Gervinho - a player who himself made the switch from Lille to Arsenal earlier in the window.
