Palermo star Armin Bacinovic has conceded his dream is to play in the Premier League as he loves British football.
The Slovenian midfielder only joined Palermo last summer, but he has been attracting rave reviews, and Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool have all been strongly linked with a bid for him.
Bacinovic rubbished reports he was set for a move to England last month, but he has now admitted he would love to play in the Premier League.
Bacinovic was part of the Slovenian side that drew 0-0 in Belfast against Northern Ireland earlier this week.
The game was a very British affair in the way it was played and the Palermo man says he relished that.
"In Belfast, there were so many hard tackles, we fought for every ball. But that is the way I like to play football," he told Sportskenovosti.
"I enjoy so much the hard battles, I'm a die-hard player and I never step back, not even one centimetre.
"There was one moment where one of the Northern Ireland players got really close to me - he thought that I would be scared and move away, but I pushed him away and the ref stepped in between us.
"But yes, I really like the British kind of football so my big wish is to play in the Premier League one day."
