Ligue 1 star drops Arsenal hint
Lille striker Moussa Sow has revealed his desire to play in the English Premier League.
The highly rated forward is wanted by a number of big European clubs and he could leave Lille for a big club in the near future.
The 25-year-old has just over a year and a half left on his deal with Ligue 1 champions, but admits he is unlikely to sign a new deal.
“I have a contract signed until June 2013 and Lille want me to sign another contract but the negotiations have stopped,“ Sow told Radio Monte Carlo.
“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.“
The player who finished as Ligue 1 top goalscorer last season says that he dreams of playing in the Premier League.
“But my dream is to play in the Premier League, 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.”

However, Massimo Moratti has now revealed that Inter will not be making a bid for Tevez.

“The Financial Fair Play rules will be in the minds of everyone. Saying that, I am aware that I have responsibilities as the president and a fan of this team.”
Interest in Tevez is still high, with AC Milan chiefs revealing they were prepared to sign the player on loan in January.
