Sochaux full-back Sebastien Corchia says he is flattered to have been linked with the likes of Arsenal and Tottenham and admits he would relish a move to a big club.

The 22-year-old France youth international has become a first team regular at Sochaux since joining the Ligue 1 club from Le Mans in 2011.

His performances this season have attracted interest from across Europe, with German giants Bayern Munich also among his suitors.

Corchia is pleased to be wanted abroad and says he is hopeful of a transfer in the summer.

“I am happy when I am being mentioned with prestigious clubs home and abroad,” he is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

“I am working hard to reach the top level and play in a bigger club than Sochaux, it is everyone’s ambition to move to a big club.

“I am a big fan of the two leagues England and Germany, they are the best two leagues at the moment.

“At the end of the season, I will sit down with the club and see the next step.”
