It is expected that the Ghana international will leave French football during the current transfer window, with numerous clubs having added him to their wish list.

Everton and Fulham are understood to be keen on bringing him to the Premier League, with the Cottagers leading the chase.

Benfica, Porto and Marseille have also been credited with holding an interest in the highly-rated 23-year-old.

Rabiu concedes that he would welcome the opportunity to take on a new challenge and his absence from training at Evian since Monday suggests he could be about to get his wish.

On a possible move, he said: "I want to play in England if there is a possibility.

"The English league is the best in the world and every good player wants to play there.

"Fulham are a good club, settled in the Premier League with a good manager.

"There is interest in France as well so I have to make a choice. England will be my preference because it has always been my dream to play in England."

air play to the lad. I'd like to think I 'd have no fear of heading off to the other side of the world to coach, but in truth, I don't have the cajones. Hopefully he can make a decent living out of it.
