Lille defender Aurelien Chedjou admits that he would like to play in England in the near future.

Lille defender Aurelien Chedjou believes that he can become one of the best defenders in Europe if he can secure a move to a top European side.

Chedjou has spent the last six years with Lille, helping the club to the Ligue 1 title in 2011, but the centre-back has revealed that he is ready to test himself against better opposition.

The 27-year-old told France Football: "I don't want to sound pretentious, but I feel ready to join a top European team. Then it will be up to me to make a name for myself there.

"I am ambitious but I am not saying that I am a Nemanja Vidic, Rio Ferdinand or John Terry, who have proved a lot and are older than me. I can dream and say I believe I can be as good as them.

"I have always wanted to play in England. There are great players there and you play at a high level."

The Cameroon international has made 36 appearances for Lille this season.
