Transfer news: Toulouse’s Etienne Capoue is a reported target for some of Europe’s top clubs

Toulouse star Etienne Capoue has put Arsenal and Tottenham on alert by admitting he wants to leave his current club.

The 24-year-old defensive midfielder, who is reportedly wanted by some of Europe’s top clubs, has voiced his frustration at Toulouse’s failure to qualify for Europe last season.

“I want to play in the Champions League, and face the best teams in the continent. Toulouse cannot offer me that this season,” the former France Under-21 international told L’Equipe.

“We missed out on Europe at the end of the Championnat. Yes, I want to leave,

“It’s not that I’m not happy at Toulouse, but I want to progress, pass a course and integrate as quickly as possible in the France team.”

Toulouse president Olivier Sadran, however, insists the club have not received any offers for Capoue.

“For Etienne, I have not received any offers. Many big clubs think that some of our top players have yet to mature,” he said.
