Evian Gaillard striker Saber Khelifa has emerged as a target for two Premier League sides and though he is open to a move he has stated that he will let the club make the big decisions over his future, Sky Sports reports.

Both West Bromwich Albion and Southampton have been reported to be watching the 26-year-old and reports claim that the Premier League duo are ready to offer €4million (£3.4m) for the Tunisian international, with Evian hoping to recoup €6million (£5.1m).

Khelifa had been heavily linked with a move to Ligue 1 rivals Marseille this summer but the striker admitted that if he does leave Evian then he will leave the country too.

“I want to improve,” he said. “I want to move away from France. Evian has been good to me, but everyone wants to go to the top.

“The French league is good, but the English and German leagues are very attractive to the modern player. I am no different to that.

“The Premier League for me is the best league in the world. I want to play there one day. I am leaving my agent to do his work.

“Marseille? The interest is more in the papers than concrete. They are the biggest club in France, so they will turn your head, but Evian has been great to me and they will have a big say on my future.”
