Club Brugge defender Bjorn Engels says it is too early in his career to join big clubs like Arsenal or Borussia Dortmund.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move to the English Premier League or the German Bundesliga this summer.
But he says he wants to first join a "mid-table team" in order to gain the necessary experience to eventually join a prestigious club in Europe.
"That [a move to Dortmund or Arsenal] is a bridge too far for me at the moment," Engels told Het Laatste Nieuws.
"A mid-table team [in a big league] would be the ideal next step for me and there have been some serious offers from such teams.
"I am staying calm, though. I only want to be informed about it when Club also agree to a transfer.
"I am 100 per cent focused on Club now and that will not change so long as I am here. Playing in the Champions League is a nice prospect as well.
"We will have to wait and see what happens."
