Cheikh M'Bengue believes that Arsenal want to sign him from French club Toulouse.

Toulouse full-back Cheikh M'Bengue has suggested that Arsenal are keen on his services.

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger revealed over the weekend that he was keen to add to his squad before the transfer window closes, with a defender believed to be his number one target.

With that in mind, 24-year-old M'Bengue believes that he is the player Wenger wants to take to the Emirates Stadium.

"Arsenal's interest? To be honest I didn't expect it," M'Bengue told L'Equipe. "When such a big club is thinking about you, it is great pleasure, but you are above all surprised.

"It is really flattering. Moreover, the Premier League is the league where I would like to play."

The left-back signed professional forms with Toulouse in 2007.
