Toulouse midfielder Etienne Capoue has confessed his desires of leaving the club this summer to join a club capable of offering him regular European football, Sky Sports reports.

The 24-year-old, who has been at the club for his entire career, looks set to be the subject of a potential bidding war this summer with the likes of Premier League duo Arsenal and Spurs interested in him, as well as AC Milan and PSG, although Toulouse manager Alain Casanova is hoping to convince him to stay.

“If he wants to keep me, that is good,” Capoue told French newspaper L’Equipe.

“That says that he counts on me, that he is happy with me.

“But it is football. I feel it is the moment to leave, to play in big competitions.”

Capoue is currently in Montevideo with the national team for the friendlies between France and Uruguay tomorrow and Brazil on Sunday in Porto Alegre and he has insisted that nothing will be decided until he returns home.

“Right now, I am with the national team and I continue to represent TFC,” he said. “We will talk about it again after June 10.”

Capoue has featured 38 times for Toulouse this season, scoring seven goals.
