Newcastle United midfielder Moussa Sissoko says his dream is to play for Arsenal.
The 26-year-old is expected to leave the Magpies after a very disappointing campaign that saw Rafa Benitez's side fail to avoid relegation.
The Gunners have been linked with a possible move for the Frenchman who would be delighted to join Arsene Wenger at the Emirates.
"It's very flattering [to be linked with Arsenal, it's] one of the best European clubs," he told Foot Mercato.
"To be followed by this kind of club, it proves that we have the quality. It's good to know. I hope I will have a chance soon to play in this club or similar club.
"It's a very big club in Europe. I think few people would refuse to play there.
"Everyone knows, I have often said when I was young, my heart was Arsenal club, because there were a lot of French players that have been there as Thierry Henry, Robert Pires, Sylvain Wiltord, Patrick Vieira who was my idol.
"The beautiful Arsenal. We'll see.
"I can not tell you that I will go to Arsenal. For now, I'm focused on the team of France and the Euros.
"I have advisers who manage all this and I hope everything will go well with minimal difficulty for me to find another club."
