Keita recently departed Qatari club Al Saad and is on the lookout for a new side, with Sunderland, Southampton, QPR and West Brom all linked with the 31-year-old.

A number of top French clubs are also thought to be keen on the Ivorian but the forward, who has already played in Ligue 1 with Lille and Lyon, would rather join the English top-flight.

He is keen to pit himself against some of the Premier League's top left-backs, including Ashley Cole and Patrice Evra.

Keita said: "I would love to test myself against the best left backs of this world, who are all in the Premier League; Cole, Evra, (Gael) Clichy, (Leighton) Baines.

"Hopefully that dream will come true for me in a couple of weeks' time.

"My agent is working on it in England."
