Arsenal are not the only Premier League club keen to sign Rennes midfielder Tongo Doumbia, according to the player himself.
Doumbia, 22, has attracted interest from a string of Premier League sides, most notably Arsenal, after a series of promising performances for Rennes.
And speaking to French newspaper Le 10 Sport, the 22-year-old said that his agent was handling several offers, including "some from the Premier League."
Doumbia also expressed his commitment to Rennes - but added that he would opt to play in England next season if he had the choice.
"I know these are progressing well, but we must talk about Rennes now," he said.
"Not that I want to leave Rennes but my desire is to play in the Premier League, for its atmosphere in the stadiums and the fans.
"If it were up to me I would be playing in England next season."
