Premier League.

The 25-year-old will be representing his nation at the tournament this month, with their first-game scheduled to take place on Tuesday.

He currently plays his club football with MSK Zilina in Slovakia, but previously enjoyed a spell in France with Auxerre earlier in his career.

Having played alongside a number of Premier League stars during that time, he is now keen to link up with them once again in the near future:

“I have lots of friends there like Younes Kaboul and Abou Diaby, who I played with for Auxerre, and Hatem Ben Arfa and Samir Nasri, who were also my team-mates,” he is quoted by the┬áSunday Times.

“England today has the best championship in the world. Playing there is my dream.”

It is unclear as to whether there are any interested parties, but it would appear that one of the teams lower down the table could be a realistic option.

The defender started his career with Auxerre, graduating from their youth set-up before making over 30 first-team appearances.

He went on to play in Romania and Slovenia before joining Zilina in 2012.

Despite being a senior Togo international, Akakpo represented France at youth level.
