CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia states his intention to leave the club if the right offer comes along.

CSKA Moscow forward Seydou Doumbia has revealed he is open to a switch to a major European team.

The 24-year-old Ivory Coast international has long been touted for a move across the continent, with Arsenal and Chelsea consistently linked with the striker.

Doumbia told Corriere dello Sport he is would consider a switch to a team capable of offering regular Champions League football.

"I'm not closing the door on any team, I could be interested if the project they're working on convinces me.

"I am ready for the Italian championship, but also for Spain or England. I want to make the next step in my career.

"I want to play in the Champions League. But it doesn't make sense to join a club that plays in the Champions League one year, and then doesn't even play in Europe the next season."

Doumbia enjoyed a prolific season in Russia scoring 26 league goals.

Despite winning the golden boot CSKA Moscow missed out on the Champions League, leading to mounting speculation it may be time for the Ivorian to leave the club.
