Mathieu Coutadeur has confirmed he intends to leave Le Mans in the summer with Paris Saint Germain his preferred destination.

Coutadeur is highly-rated in Ligue 1 and reports have suggested his form has attracted the eye of Arsenal.

However, the 22-year-old holding midfielder has revealed he is keen to sign at the Parc des Princes at the end of the season.

The Frenchman told Aujourd'hui Sport: "Paris? I am obviously attracted, when you see such a club and such a team.

"My agent has had contact with several clubs, but there is nothing concrete so far. German sides are attracted.

"Arsenal? I read they are attracted. I have been surprised. My team-mates have teased me. There are contacts, but nothing concrete.

"It is time for me to leave. That is very clear. The chairman gave me his agreement for leaving. I want to reach a new level. I need a big sporting challenge.

"The best solution? Going to PSG. Playing beside Claude Makelele would be great."
