Egypt’s red-hot forward Mohamed Salah said he is hoping to join a high-profile European outfit after producing a series of scintillating performances with Swiss side Basel.

The 21-year-old was lauded for helping Basel defeat Chelsea twice in a stunning double over the English side in the European Champions League group stage.

He was on target as Basel claimed a 2-1 upset victory at Stamford Bridge before scoring the decisive winner which helped his side beat Jose Mourinho’s team 1-0 at home on Tuesday.

“I'm very proud to have scored two goals against Chelsea,” Salah, who was Egypt’s joint top scorer with six goals in their World Cup qualifying run, told British paper The Sun.

“I want to play for one of the best teams in the world. My favourites are Real Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea.”

Recent English reports suggested Tottenham Hotspur are lining up a January bid for Salah, who is consistently praised for his pace and trickery down the flanks.

The former Arab Contractors man has scored eight goals for Basel in all competitions so far this season.
