Standard Liege striker Michy Batshuayi has revealed he dreams of playing for Arsenal or Borussia Dortmund, reports Sky Sports.

The Belgium U21 international is widely regarded as a star of the future, and is expected to make a major European move next summer, with admirers in the Premier League and Bundesliga.

"I don't think I will be playing in Belgium next season," Batshuayi told Het Laatste Nieuws. "My parents, especially my dad, think I'm ready for the next step.

"This summer there was some interest, but I decided I didn't want to leave Standard without leaving a trace - being champion or being top scorer."

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing the 20-year-old to the Emirates Stadium, though it's unlikely that he'll be able to secure the player's services in January.

Arsenal are keen to add cover for Olivier Giroud when the transfer window reopens, but might be forced to wait for Batshuayi, after Standard Liege president Roland Duchatelet said he "isn't going anywhere next month".

The north London club could also face competition from Dortmund, should Jurgen Klopp lodge a rival bid for the starlet's signature, after Batshuayi also touted Signal Iduna Park as a possible destination.

"I've two dreams clubs in Europe - Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund," he added.

"Borussia because of their mix between quality and spirit, Arsenal because they give opportunities to young and talented players."
