Seydou Doumbia issues 'come and get me' plea to Arsenal

CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia states that if he was to move to the Premier League then Arsenal would be his preferred choice.

CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia has issued a 'come and get me' plea to Arsene Wenger and Arsenal.

A potential move to the Emirates would see the Ivory Coast forward join up with international teammate Gervinho, although Doumbia admitted he would still be happy staying in Russia.

"From childhood I've dreamed of England, but CSKA plays at a very high level. I'm very happy here," he said.

Reports in Russia suggest that CSKA have put a £35m price tag on the 23-year-old.

"If Arsenal want to buy me," said Doumbia, "they must first talk to CSKA. Then perhaps I'll be allowed to go."

Doumbia, who has played in Japan, Switzerland and Russia, has scored four goals in this season's Champions League.
