Nice striker Loic Remy has urged West Ham United not to give up hope of signing him this summer.
The French club are reported to be holding out for a £12million fee for their 23-year-old frontman.
The Hammers are believed to be unwilling to match that valuation for the former France Under-21 international, who has also been linked with moves to Lyon and several Italian clubs.
But Remy has admitted that a move to the Premier League with the Hammers would be a dream come true.
"I would like it to be sorted quickly," Remy told L'Equipe.
"I've always loved the English league. I've always dreamed of playing in England.
"When a club like West Ham is on the cards, it's always interesting.
"But nothing has been done, the clubs need to find an agreement and Nice are asking for a lot of money."
