Egyptian striker Mohamed El-Gabbas has revealed it is his 'dream' to one day play for Arsenal.
The 23-year-old is currently the toast of Belgian's top tier after bagging three goals in the last three games of the season to help his club Lierse SK avoid relegation.
El-Gabbas' love affair for the Premier League began after spending time in Newcastle's youth set-up as a 17-year-old in 2005 but was forced to return to his native Egypt following work permit issues.
However, the forward is keen to come back to England and has set his sights on playing under Arsene Wenger.
"At 17 I was involved with Newcastle and learnt much about professional football," he told Belgian newspaper HLN.
"I had to return to Egypt because I couldn't obtain a work license but my goal is to play in the Premier League again - my dream is to go to Arsenal."
El-Gabbas' style of play has been compared to Egyptian legend Ahmed Hassan, who is one of the most internationally capped players of all time with 175 appearances for the North African side.
