Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure has revealed that Arsenal, Tottenham, and Liverpool are interested in acquiring his services.

Speaking in an interview with Telefoot, the Frenchman also revealed his preference if he were to move to one of those clubs.

He confirmed that he would choose Arsenal because of his admiration for Gunners manager Arsene Wenger.

Doucoure has impressed at Watford in the Premier League this season, scoring seven goals and providing two assists in 26 appearances.

The 25-year-old - who re-joined the Hornets last summer after a successful stint at Granada - is under contract at Vicarage Road until 2020.

He had previously played for Rennes in his homeland, and he has spoken of the differences between the English top flight and Ligue 1.

"It changes the situation. With my style of play, my physical abilities, it is surely the league that suits me best," he said in a separate interview with France Football.

"The intensity in the game did not surprise me, with the matches being played at 200mph.

"There, you are quickly valued compared to France. It's much better. In France, I'm not going to say that I was underrated, but I did good things and we did not talk as much about me.

"In England, after a few matches, Watford fans saw my talent and the consultants quickly made comparisons about me. And that brought me to light

"In England, if you do good performances for one or two months, you are quickly put forward. And even if you miss a match, they're not going to tell you that you're bad. This is especially what surprised me.

"When I see the image I have there compared to France, when it is only a short time that I am there, it is day and night."
