Montpellier's Moroccan forward Younes Belhanda said on Thursday that he is keen on moving to the Premier League, as he is eager to take on a new challenge away from Ligue 1.

The 23-year-old produced a string of good displays this season, scoring ten goals in 30 matches.

He has been linked with a move to the Premier League, with Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal having expressed a desire to acquire the player's services.

"Next season? I don't know. I have contacts but nothing concrete," Belhanda told L'Equipe on Thursday.

"I want to go to England or Germany. I believe I am made for that football, both physical and technical, with a lot of risks.

"My wish is to play in the Champions League next season, but I could sign for a club with a big history.

"I will not learn anything else in France. I know how we play here. I need a new mentality, new excitement," he said.
