Borussia Dortmund defender Neven Subotic has reiterated his interest in playing in the Premier League in the future.
The Serbia international centre-back, who faced Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night, has long been linked with a move to Chelsea.
Defending Bundesliga champions Dortmund spent the summer insisting they would not sell Subotic and they are under no pressure because the player is under contract until June 2014.
But the 22-year-old former Mainz man has made it clear he would like to challenge himself in England's top flight in the future.
Subotic told Sky Deutschland television: "I am under contract at Borussia Dortmund and I am happy to be here.
"Anyway, a dream of mine is still to play in the Premiership. One day in the future, I want to try myself out in that competition."
Dortmund rescued a late point against Arsenal on Tuesday, as Ivan Perisic's wonderful volley cancelled out a Robin van Persie opener which came as a result of a mistake by Dortmund captain Sebastian Kehl.
Subotic said of playing in the Champions League: "This is a very strong competition and we will be giving our very best.
"But we have to know that every little error will be punished."
