Fiorentina star open to Arsenal move

West Ham United target Khouma Babacar says that he would be in favour of a move to Arsenal from Fiorentina.

Fiorentina starlet Khouma Babacar has admitted that he would be willing to join Arsenal should the club make an offer for him.

The 20-year-old Senegalese striker, who is currently out on loan at Serie B side Modena, has also reportedly attracted interest from West Ham United.

"It is very encouraging for me to be followed by clubs like Arsenal," Babacar told Sky Sports News. "They are one of the biggest clubs in the world and they do great things with young players.

"The coach (Arsene Wenger) has a great reputation at developing the talents of the young players but at this time I am under contract at Fiorentina.

"It is only Fiorentina who shall decide if I go to England. Through my agent, I also received interest from West Ham but not anything official yet."

Babacar has scored one goal in 23 appearances for Fiorentina.

Juan Guillermo Cuadrado of ACF Fiorentina (C) is congratulated by team-mates after scoring their team's first goal to equalise during the Serie A match between AC Chievo Verona and ACF Fiorentina at Stadio Marc'Antonio Bentegodi on October 27, 2013
