In-form forward wants Premier League move and singles out Emirates Stadium side as the team he wishes to secure a move to.
Monaco striker Ibrahima Toure has revealed that he dreams of playing for Arsenal.
“Playing in the Premier League is my dream. That is my wish,” Toure told L’Equipe. “Would I stay if I have offers from England next summer? It will depend on what the club officials decide. We will see.
“Monaco are a big club but my long-term wish is to play in England, for example at Arsenal.”

Whilst there is a world of difference between making an impact in the second tier of French football and being a Premier League success Arsene Wenger has links with Monaco, the club he managed for seven years, and has previously purchased Park Chu-Young from the principality club. Therefore it’s beyond the realms of possibility that the Gunners boss could heed Ibrahima Toure’s call.
The 26 year old forward has netted 12 goals in 11 matches this term but the Senegal international has no top level league experience to speak of. Prior to his move to the Stade Louis II he had plied his trade in Iran for four years and before that he was playing in China.
The big Dakar born forward may be in-form and Arsenal may be in dire need of attacking reinforcements but this is one move that Wenger would surely not consider.
That said Arsene Wenger did buy the aforementioned Park Chu-Young who was similarly lacking in top tier experience so perhaps it’s a move the French boss would consider, but may similarly regret doing so if he did indeed purchase Toure.
