Cape Town - Monaco defender Djibril Sidibe has revealed he would have some interest in making a move to the Premier League in the upcoming transfer window.

The 24-year-old has been linked with Arsenal and Tottenham after playing an important part in Monaco's Ligue 1 title-winning campaign.

Sidibe, however, still has four years left on his contract, which means his services would only be attained at a premium fee.

"It's a league that attracts me, but there are a lot of French players who left early or at a time in their career that wasn't necessarily the best, and they have disappeared a little," the right-back is quoted as saying by L'Equipe.

"You have to leave at the right time and know if I have the ability to perform well there. The top five in England is attractive, but it's very difficult even if I'm not afraid.

"It's quite an unusual period with a year to go to the World Cup. There will be a time for thinking about things. It's already started actually, even if right now I'm completely focused on France. I'm quite open, but I'm under contract with Monaco and it doesn't worry me to do another season.

"My criteria is playing time, the environment for me to improve in and increase my chances of establishing myself long-term in the French national team."
