The 26-year-old has been a revelation in the French second tier since linking up with Monaco in January.

Toure has netted 23 times in 28 appearances, maintaining the prolific form he displayed prior to earning a move to Europe.

The Senegal international is now looking to work his way up the football ladder and has refused to rule out the possibility of completing a switch to the Premier League in 2013.

"Playing in the Premier League is my dream. That is my wish," Toure told L'Equipe.

"Would I stay if I have offers from England next summer? It will depend on what the club officials decide. We will see.

"Monaco are a big club but my long-term wish is to play in England, for example at Arsenal."

enteke is an absolute steal for £32.5m, he would get into any team in the world (except Barcelona) at the moment. I've seen many very good strikers in my 30+ years as a Villa fan. This guy is the best without question.
