Norwich midfielder Emiliano Buendia has refused to move out a move to Arsenal this January after admitting he is desperate to play Premier League football again.
The Canaries star was strongly linked with a transfer in the summer after he was unable to save his side from relegation last season.
In the end nothing materialised, however, and he ended up staying to help his side to the top of the Championship table.
There are reports that the Gunners are lining up a bid for the player this month as they look to add further attacking flair to their side.
And in an interview with Argentinean station Radio Residencias Buendia opened up on his desire to play in England's elite division once more.
"It is the best league in the world, it is the one that makes the difference at all levels," he said. "Any team makes life difficult for anyone, it is very complicated.
"Their organisational level is perfect, the stadiums have a lot of history, the conditions for playing football are ideal, there are no excuses. And the players and the teams are the best.
"I aspire to the best and work every day to get back to it, either in my team or through a transfer. Returning to the Premier in the short term is a dream."
It is not yet clear whether or not this will be with Norwich or Arsenal, but Buendia said for now his focus is fully on the Canaries.
He added: "It is true that there was a lot of talk in the summer, after relegation, about the possibility that both I and other teammates could leave the team to continue in the Premier League.
"However, I always had my head with the club. I belong to Norwich, I have to do things well for my team. Tomorrow we will see, but I never had my head outside the objectives, to work so that my club does well.
"As this season unfolds, we are doing well and I am very happy to be here. We are in a good position, I am feeling important, I am scoring goals and making assists for my teammates."
