Ghana winger Christian Atsu has confirmed he is ready to ditch FC Porto to chase his dream of playing in the English Premier League.
The 21-year-old is a wanted man by several European clubs including Tottenham Hotspurs and Liverpool.
The Merseyside have made an official bid to sign the Ghana international and it appears they will land their man as the skillful winger confirms he wants to leave Porto.
Atsu has just one year left on his existing deal with the Portuguese champions â€“ meaning Porto will be risking losing him for absolutely nothing if they donâ€™t sell him until the end of next season.
But Atsuâ€™s has already made up his mind to quit the Dragao in fulfillment of his childhood ambition of playing in the Premier League.
â€œI have one more year contract with FC Porto but as a child I always dream to play at the highest level especially in England,â€ he told reporters at the Ghana camp on Wednesday.
â€œI love to play there (England) so when I have the opportunity to play in England for sure I would like to move.â€
Atsuâ€™s confirmation settles the debate of where he wants to play his football next season.
All that is left now is for Porto to reach an agreement with the interested clubs for a move to materialize.
