Rumoured Tottenham target Christopher Samba has revealed that he wants to join Arsenal.
The Blackburn Rovers defender only signed a new five-year deal at Ewood Park only a few months ago.
Harry Redknapp is keen to sign another central defender after releasing Jonathan Woodgate, but it looks as if he will have to set his sights elsewhere.
Samba said: “I want to play Champions League football. Which player doesn’t dream of that?”
“A player who has no ambition to play at a higher level has made a mistake and chosen the wrong sport.
“I don’t know what is happening with Arsenal because I am not dealing with it and it’s not my problem.
“At the minute I am still at Blackburn but it would be a big lie if I told you ‘everything is good and I don’t want to play in the Champions League’.
“I don’t know what the board and the manager at Blackburn are planning or what provisions they have made for signing new players.
“It is difficult for me at the moment because I’m just waiting to see what happens and concentrating on my preparation for the new season.”
