RB Leipzig winger Emil Forsberg has issued a come-and-get-me plea after links with Arsenal and Liverpool.

The Swedish star has risen to prominence during his time in Germany, attracting some of Europe’s major clubs.

After Leipzig missed out on Champions League qualification last season, Forsberg is ready to make a switch, and has alerted clubs to his availability.

In an interview with Fotbollskanalen, he said: “I’m ready for the next big step. That’s going to be very interesting.

“I am in dialogue with RB and always had a good relationship with the club.

“I have the dream of playing for the strongest clubs in the world.”

Last month, it was reported that Arsenal were preparing a £50m offer for the playmaker, who recorded an outstanding 19 assists in 2016/17. Injury prevented him from matching those stats last season, but he is still very much in demand.

After his final game for the club last season, he hinted at a departure by tweeting “Thanks for everything”, and his latest comments have added further weight to talk of an exit.

Forsberg is under contract until 2022, meaning it could take a significant offer for Leipzig to let him go.
