Former Arsenal starlet Havard Nordtveit admits playing in the English Premier League would be a ‘dream’ amidst speculation surrounding interest from Liverpool.

The 21-year-old spent three years at the Emirates Stadium after signing from Haugesund in 2007, although never troubled the first team in Premier League action, spending time with three different clubs on loan from the Gunners.

Borussia Monchengladbach signed the youngster in December 2010, but after a successful year with the club, press reports in Germany claim Liverpool are preparing a move for the player after a number of scouting trips this season.

"I have not heard anything concrete about it from Borussia. If it is just rumours or not I do not know. Borussia want me to focus 100 per cent on the job I have now. It is best we look at it after the season,” Nordtveit told Nettavisen.

"I would like to continue my progress next year."

However, the player could not hide his aspirations to play at the highest level in English football at some stage in the future.

"The Premier League is a great league and it's every boy's dream to play there. I said that I will play there once in a lifetime. Whether it happens in one year, five years or ten years,” he added.

"It is always flattering to be linked to clubs like this, even if it's just rumours. It is positive and shows that I'm doing something right."

Nordtveit is currently away on international duty with Norway, and could feature for his country against Northern Ireland this week.

Whether he comes back to haunt Arsene Wenger under Kenny Dalglish at Anfield remains to be seen though, and the Frenchman is sure to still have an eye on the defensive midfielder’s progress following his exit from north London.
