Moroccan ace set to depart.
Montpellier attacker Younes Belhanda has spelled out his desire to secure a switch to either the Premier League or the Bundesliga this summer, Sky Sports reports.
The 23-year-old has been on the radars of north London rivals Spurs and Arsenal this season and has been told by the French club that he will be allowed to leave the club this summer.
Belhanda has three years remaining on his current deal, but the 2012 champions have said that they won’t stand in his way, and whilst the Premier League dup are set to battle it out, the Moroccan international has suggested that he may go another way.
“Next season? I don’t know. I have contacts but nothing concrete,” he told French newspaper L’Equipe.
“I want to go to England or Germany. I believe I am made for that football, both physical and technical with a lot of risks.
“My wish is to play in the Champions League next season, but I could sign for a club with big history.
“I will not learn anything else in France. I know how we play here. I need a new mentality, new excitement.”
Belhanda has made just under 150 appearances for Montpellier, scoring 16 goals since breaking into the squad in 2009.
