Arsenal target Moussa Sow has admitted he dreams of playing in the Barclays Premier League after talks over a new deal with Lille broke down reports skysports.com.
The 25-year-old striker has attracted interest from a host of European clubs after a series of scintillating performances in Ligue 1, and with his current deal set to expire in 2013, Sow has been linked with an exit.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is a long-term admirer of the Senegalese international, and is believed to be considering an offer to bring Sow to the Emirates Stadium in January - particularly after he intimated his desire to join a 'big club' like the Gunners.
"I have a contract signed until June 2013 and Lille want me to sign another contract but the negotiations have stopped," he told RMC Sports. "I don't accept the conditions or the silence from the club.
"That's not me putting on pressure, just the truth. I'm only thinking about football and it's not possible to leave in January."
After establishing himself as one of the best strikers in Europe, it is thought that Arsenal will face competition for Sow's signature, but the fact he holds the north Londoners in high regard, could play into their hands.
"My dream is to play in the Premier League," he continued. "Because you progress as a player with the atmosphere, goals and game.
"I watch the games with envy on TV. I desire to play there one day. Arsenal are a big club. But we will see."
