Charles Kabore: Hoping to test himself in the Premier League

Premier League clubs have been credited with holding an interest in Kabore in the past, and speculation suggests Stoke and West Ham could be tempted to make a move.

The Burkina Faso international is currently away on Africa Cup of Nations duty, but a deal could be put in place which will allow him to link up with a new employer upon his return to Europe.

A move to Turkey has been touted, but Kabore admits his preference would be to head for English shores.

The 24-year-old still has over two years left to run on his current contract at Marseille, but reports suggest he could be bought out of that agreement for around £2million.

"I have a contract with Marseille until June 2015 so I can hold out for a move to England," said Kabore.

"I love English football. I have contacts with some clubs in other leagues, but my priority is to play in the best league in the world."
