Youssouf Mulumbu wants West Bromwich Albion exit

Youssouf Mulumbu says that the "time is right" to leave West Bromwich Albion in order to play in Europe.

Youssouf Mulumbu has revealed his desire to leave West Bromwich Albion in order to play in Europe.

Arsenal are believed to be among those chasing the 26-year-old midfielder, who has excelled at The Hawthorns since arriving from Paris Saint-Germain in 2009.

"[West Brom] are aware of my ambitions for the future," he told France Football. "If I have the opportunity to join a more upscale club, I will.

"I owe West Brom a lot but now I would only go elsewhere to play in the Europa League or Champions League. I think it is the right time. I have progressed in my game, my game management, mentally, tactically, physically and I am ready to go to a top-four club.

"There have been approaches, but I do not dwell on it - I leave it for the club and my agent to handle. England is my first destination. I feel good here, there is no longer a language barrier. Beyond that, maybe there are opportunities with other clubs in the Champions League."

Mulumbu has won 20 caps for the Republic of Congo.
