Wolfsburg striker Jonas Wind has described Arsenal as his “dream destination” and says he is dying to play in the Premier League.

Wind joined Wolfsburg from FC Copenhagen in January and has scored five goals in 16 appearances for the Bundesliga side.

The 23-year-old has also scored five goals in 15 games for Denmark and is expected to appear at the World Cup in Qatar later this year.

Arsenal, meanwhile, were exploring the possibility of signing another striker this summer after agreeing a £45million deal for Gabriel Jesus but failed to bolster Mikel Arteta’s options before the transfer window closed.

When asked if he had a chance to leave Wolfsburg in the summer, Wind told Buli News: “There wasn’t anything specific I had to deal with.

“I’ve only been here for a little over half a year and I’ve been happy with my time at the club so far, so I’m not even thinking about a change.

“But looking to the future Arsenal would be a dream destination for me as they have always been my favorite club.

“In general I think the Premier League is the best league in the world and it would be exciting to play there. But like I said, that’s not what I’m concentrating on at the moment.

“I’m fine here in Wolfsburg, it’s a good club for me and the Bundesliga is a great league to play in.

“Right now I’m just concentrating on my performances here and then we’ll see if I’m good enough to take the next step at some point in the future.”
