Saber Khelifa: Evian striker has been linked with Southampton and West Brom

Khelifa, who scored from inside his own half against Nice last month, has been linked with a summer move to either Southampton or West Bromwich Albion.

Reports have claimed that the Premier League duo are willing to offer €4million (£3.4m) for the Tunisia international, with Evian hoping to recoup €6million (£5.1m).

The 26-year-old has played down a potential move to Marseille after confirming he wants to play in a different league if he leaves Evian this summer.

"I want to improve," said Khelifa. "I want to move away from France. Evian has been good to me, but everyone wants to go to the top.

"The French league is good, but the English and German leagues are very attractive to the modern player. I am no different to that.

"The Premier League for me is the best league in the world. I want to play there one day. I am leaving my agent to do his work.

"Marseille? The interest is more in the papers than concrete. They are the biggest club in France, so they will turn your head, but Evian has been great to me and they will have a big say on my future."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
