French striker Youssef El-Arabi "flattered" by Stoke, Wolves interest

French striker Youssef El-Arabi responds to rumours of interest from Stoke and Wolves.

Youssef El-Arabi has said he is "flattered" by rumours of interest from Stoke and Wolves.

The 24-year-old striker managed 17 goals in 38 appearances for Ligue 1 side Caen last season and has also made three appearances for the Moroccan national side.

"I am flattered by the different reports in the papers linking me with clubs in Europe," El-Arabi told Sky Sports. "I did have a gentleman's agreement with the club to go this summer, but to be honest it depends on the club.

"I am an ambitious player and want to play week in, week out in a top league and test myself against the top defenders in world.

"If an offer came for me from a good team and my club get what they want, I will be off. I love the Premier League."
