Paris love affair: Gunners youngster Traore eyes dream PSG switch

17 March 2010 12:18
Arsenal youngster Armand Traore believes he will eventually play for Paris St Germain, the 'club of his dreams',  although he admits a move this summer would be too early.

Traore moved to Arsenal from Monaco in 2006 and, having spent last year on loan at Portsmouth, is now beginning to prove himself at the Emirates.

With Kieran Gibbs injured, the 20-year-old has emerged as first-choice understudy to compatriot Gael Clichy in the left-back role.

Dream move: Armand Traore has revealed his wish to leave Arsenal for Paris-SG

However, Traore admits he would love to move back to Paris, where he was born.

Happy for now: Despite his dream, Traore will stay on

'PSG will always be PSG,' he told French daily Le Parisien. 'They are a great club which made a whole generation of people dream during the years 1990-2000.

'And the Parc des Princes is a mythical stadium. Still today when I talk to other players, prestigious or not and of all nationalities, they talk to me about PSG, telling me that they dream about playing there one day.

'And moreover, for me, Paris represents a lot. It's the club of my dreams and I know that I will play there one day.'

Traore added: 'If people from PSG contact me this summer, I would listen carefully to what they have to say.

'But I think it's too early for me to go to PSG. I prefer to stay longer in England.

'But God willing, I'll come there later. I really want it.'
