Mohammed Rabiu: Would welcome an opportunity to test himself in the Premier Leag

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."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
