John Mensah has hinted that his future could lie in the Premier League amid reports linking him with a move away from Lyon.
According to rumours in France, the Ghana international is attracting interest from Sunderland and West Ham United.
Mensah is flattered by the speculation but remains focused on ensuring he enjoys a successful 2009/10 season.
The 26-year-old defender told skysports.com: "It is great to be linked to Premier League clubs.
"My past season with Lyon was not good and I hated to be injured. But I am fit now and raring to go, either at Lyon or the Premier League."
He added: "I am aware of the interest, but nothing is agreed yet, it was always an ambition to play in the Premier League, so let's wait and see."
