FC Twente striker Ola John - a reported target for both Manchester United and Liverpool - believes his future lies in the Barclays Premier League.

The 19-year-old has scored five times for Twente this season as they chase a second Eredivisie title in three seasons.

Twente are currently third in the table, five points behind league leaders AZ Alkmaar, but with a superior goal difference.

John, meanwhile, has been one of the Dutch side's stars this term, and his exploits have reportedly alerted Manchester United and Liverpool.

And, although John is keen to move to England, he has no intention of moving to Old Trafford or Anfield until the summer at least.

"I first want to do everything I can to make FC Twente champions again," he said.

"Then I'll know the time is right to switch to a big English club. Through my brother Collins, I know how beautiful it is to play in the Premier League."

Meanwhile, another starlet being linked with both United and Liverpool is Brazilian teenager Lucas Rodrigues, with Sir Alex Ferguson and Kenny Dalglish said to be fans of the midfielder.

He, however, unlike John, is unsure whether a move away from his country of birth would further his career.
