Transfer News: Seydou Doumbia wants to play Champions League football

CSKA Moscow striker Seydou Doumbia is open to a switch to England, with Arsenal and Chelsea reportedly interested.

The 24-year-old Ivory Coast international scored 38 goals but the Russian club missed out on Champions League football next campaign and has been linked with a move away from Moscow.

“I’m not closing the door on any team,” Doumbia told Corriere dello Sport.

“I could be interested if the project they’re working on convinces me. I am ready for the Italian championship, but also for Spain or England. I want to make the next step in my career.

“I want to play in the Champions League. But it doesn’t make sense to join a club that plays in the Champions League one year, and then doesn’t even play in Europe the next season.”
